About Us

Derek HammerHammer Lighting & Grip, Inc. is Indiana’s largest and most complete lighting and grip equipment rental company–and one of the largest in the Midwest. We specialize in providing grip trucks, dollies, lighting, generators, and grip equipment for your next commercial, documentary, independent film, industrial video, corporate event, or still photo shoot.

We are located in Indianapolis, but we can go anywhere. We’re built to travel. We would love to have an opportunity to outfit you on your next shoot.

We currently stock equipment from the top manufacturers in the business. We rent dollies from J.L. Fisher; lighting from Mole-Richardson, Arri, Cinemills, and Kino-Flo; grip equipment from Matthews and American Grip; generators from LitePower and Honda; and a whole lot of other great stuff from the best manufacturers in the business. We have HMIs from 200 Watt to 18K, tungsten up to 10K, and the Midwest’s best variety of rigging and mounting hardware.

Looking for everything you need in one convenient package? We have an inventory of newer grip trucks, from our 1-ton Sprinter Van to our large and spacious 5-ton. All trucks have big lift gates, racks, and carts and are designed by the technicians who use them, keeping them efficient and easy to use.

Our equipment is well maintained and reliable–and it looks good, too! And the full complement of bulbs and expendables for sale in our showroom and the new and used equipment we sell make us a full-service production support facility.

Our mission is to serve you in the best way that we can. Spend some time looking through our site to see what we have. If you don’t see something you need, please call and we’ll do our best to get it for you. We want you to feel comfortable shooting here. Most important, we want you to call us back, so please feel free to offer suggestions or ask questions.
