Kinetic Productions


Kinetic is a full-service production house offering video & audio production, lighting & grip, specialty gear, crewing, teleprompter services and rentals.

Video Production

ENG (Electronic News Gathering):
"ENG" or Electronic News gathering is the most common production service offered. This single camera basic package is perfect for covering press conferences, interviews, conventions, and low budget commercials.

This package includes choice of camera format, tripod, field monitor, basic light kit as outlined below and audio package as outlined below. This package comes standard with a two man crew (Cameraman, Sound Tech). Variations on the above (one man band news crew), may be negotiated in advance. 

Additional equipment/services available on request (Wide Angle Zoom Lens, Matte Box/Filters, SteadiCam/Jib, Dolly/Grip, Teleprompter, Make-up, PA's, etc.). At least 2 media cards come standard with each camera package, however these cards must be transferred to a client supplied hard drive at the end of each shooting day. Client may transfer cards using their own laptop or the crew can transfer cards with a Kinetic supplied laptop at additional cost.

"EFP" or Electronic Field Production:
Similar to ENG but usually includes a more sophisticated lighting package (i.e.: Grip Truck, Dolly w/tracks, Steadicam, etc.). It may also consist of multiple "iso" cameras along with a Switcher and/or a more sophisticated audio package. This style of production applies to Talk Shows, Music performances, Infomercials, etc. Rates for EFP will vary depending on client needs. Please call for a specific quote.  

"Remote Mobile" Production:
Typically involves a video truck with a fairly large crew of specialized professionals (i.e.: Tape Op, Graphics Operator, Video Engineer, A1/A2, etc.).

A large lighting package may also be included, or handled as a separate entity. This mode of production is typically used for "Live" or "Live to Tape" events such as Music/Variety shows, Sporting events, Talk Shows, etc. As with EFP production, rates will vary on a per case basis depending on the clients actual requirements. A much larger budget is typical. Again please call for consultation and a specific quote.
