Fast, Streamlined Mobile Production Packages.

Cinema Verde has been providing southern California productions with grip and lighting services since 1997.  We’ve worked on all projects from corporate videos, to high-end commercial brand agencies to feature films.

Sprinter vans are the most popular production vehicle for video and photo stills production for many reasons.  The ability to move quickly in any production scenario or studio location while taking up a small footprint compared to the older traditional box truck design.

Add a dolly, generator & distro to our pre-loaded van pkg.

for those remote locations when reliable power is essential.

With over two decades of production experience, we’ve designed our Sprinter packages for efficiency, speed and mobility.  All equipment resources can be pulled or rolled off the van on Backstage & Studiocarts. Lighting from Arri, Aputure, K5600, Quasar & Nanlux are preloaded for fast and convenient setups.

"Mario and his team were great!  His Sprinter van not only held his neatly packed grip and lighting equipment but also housed our DP’s camera equipment.  We’ll be using Cinema Verde again on future projects."

Working with Mario and the team at Cinema Verde is the kind of experience every director/producer dreams about. They bring decades of experience in high-end commercial production, feature films, and documentary production. CV is a one-stop shop for our Grip and Lighting equipment needs, and CV has a fantastic crew that can get the most out of it. The fleet of cameras, rigging, and lighting that Mario brings to the table gives us so many creative options. Mario Ortiz is one of the best collaborators I’ve worked with on a film set. We look forward to working with them for decades to come.”
