To paraphrase a famous commercial, "with a name like Steinheimer you have be good". Alan Steinheimer has been working as lighting director and gaffer for more then 20 years. He has been called many things by many people, but good is one thing that everyone calls him. As an owner operator Alan takes pride in his creative problem solving. The one thing certain about the production industry is that it is unpredictable. When you are out on the frontlines you need to have someone reliable, who can deal with anything that gets thrown at you. Alan is one of those guys.
His experience over the years has enabled him to create a focused and efficient business. His two trucks, 2 ton and 4 ton, have been fine tuned over the years, to offer the latest in equipment. Pre-loaded lighting and grip carts enable an efficient workflow, and reliable and speedy delivery of your gear. Working with Alan as both rental house and gaffer keeps things meaner and leaner, and less to worry about.
Alan’s business philosophy has been to offer the best quality service and A-team crews at competitive prices. His long resume of experience has him connected to some of the best crew and vendors around town. In addition to his own trucks, he can find anything you need from 10 ton to 1 ton trucks, generators, electrical distribution and more. If you can think it or imagine it, Alan can bring it all together and make it happen.
At his site you can get a better idea of all that he has to offer. These include:
2 ton and 4 ton grip packages
4 ton pre-loaded lighting and electric packages
4 ton grip truck expendables
HMI / Kino Flo / LEDs / Xenon Lighting

Alan’s long resume includes work on features, commercials, television and Industrials. Chances are good that whatever your particular needs he’s been there done that, and then some. You can count on him to improvise and come up with creative solutions until the cows come home, or if you’ve got your act together he is equally at home following the DP’s game plan. At the end of day you can count on Alan to take care of his end of things, allowing you to focus on the big picture. That’s what it should be all about, right? There are many gaffers to choose from, but we have done some homework so we could feature a handful of the key “go to” guys. Lighting by Steinheimer is included in that short list. We say check him out.
