Grip and Electrics

Yukon can provide film producers with most of the grip and electrics equipment they need to film in Yukon, and can assist production companies to secure additional equipment. Yukon crews are experts in handling this equipment in the most extreme climates and challenging locations

Equipment ranges from a 120 KW blimped crystal sync generator that can be towed to the more remote locations to a grip package that can accommodate a commercial production and an ARRI package of lights up to 6 KW in size.  And all at competitive rates.
