Tim Ranahan is a juggler. Not like a circus juggler with knives or pins, but rather a juggler of information. On any given day you might find Tim on the phone fielding calls, and rattling off an encyclopedic knowledge of putting a shoot together and the ways the various pieces, and particles and bits of gear need to be assembled. While on the phone he is at the computer entering data, and printing out an invoice while another happy customer is waiting to square things away. Meanwhile someone is in from the warehouse wanting to know where some esoteric piece of gear might be hiding. Without missing a beat Tim knows just where to direct his team, and watching from the wings you think a mere mortal should not be able to do this all at the same time, and with a smile on his face and not a bit of stress and strain. Well that is the case, and why Ranahan Production Services is a favorite amongst the locals, and has been in business for as long as it has. Also is Tim’s notion of customer service. No detail is too small to be deserving of his attention. Acting as every shoot is critical Tim is always willing to go the extra mile. It is not unusual at the drop of a dime for Tim to hop on his always ready motorcycle to run off and pick something that someone needs in the moment.
Just check out the inventory of gear Ranahan offers and you’ll see pretty much everything you need to make your shoot go smoothly and your cast and crew feel taken care of on set. With a cube truck set to go at any time and anywhere in the Bay Area with all the production and communications equipment, copiers, fax machines, garbage recycling/disposal odds and ends and more Ranahan will take care of all your film, video and special event needs.
If that wasn’t enough Tim has always been a staunch supporter of the local community. He has been a member of many of the local associations and is generally an all around well liked guy. PHS is happy to include them in our directory and hope you will give Tim a shout next time you could use any of his services.
