About Location Lighting, Ltd.
Location Lighting Ltd was founded in 1998, but the origin of the company dates back to 1994. Cinematographer Brad Shapiro and Key Grip Jim Devers had worked together on many projects, some too small for a traditional grip truck. Tired of working with a van packed with cases, the idea of a mini-grip truck with a ready-to-roll package took shape.
Brad and Jim built that little one-ton, roll-out truck in 1994. It started them on the road to their Location Lighting partnership along with bigger, better roll-out grip truck designs and a constantly growing inventory. In 2005 Jim sold his interest in the company but continues to provide his knowledge and expertise on a consulting basis.
