Truck that is. And we did! We're pleased to announce the addition of a 5-ton grip truck to our growing offerings of production equipment.
Above, Hughes, stepson of Burt Holland, encyclomedia's creative partner, and Maximus Thor, internet celebrity and son of encyclomedia cohort Benjamin Barak, get some air time on the lift gate.
The truck is the perfect size to scoot about the streets of Atlanta and still carry a ton (or 2) of lighting and grip gear. It's been a huge help on recent shoots at the Historic Academy of Medicine for the CDC, SPANX headquarters in Buckhead, the Epi Breads bakery and headquarters in Atlanta, and in Athens at the Zaxby's corporate complex. Outfitted with shelves for camera essentials and racks for stands, the truck allows us to be fully mobile at a moment's notice. It's super simple to load and unload all the gear including the grip cart and the gear hamper in any location with the lift gate. It also has a pretty sweet AM/FM radio, and best of all, it's branded Encyclomedia so be sure to wave if you see us driving around town.
Pssst- it's available for hire when not in use on our shoots. Pass it on.
