Our Equipment

The SAVAGE Difference

There’s no denying we’re different to the other guys out there and we own that. It’s this difference that has earned us 545 Return Customers and saw us light over 263 projects in 2019 alone.

SAVAGE is Melbourne’s only Lighting and Gripping company to have established a fully staffed office. Our Team is always on call for whatever you need. The Team’s goal is to lower your stress levels by managing the basic aspects of your project’s lighting requirements, and making sure you’re always kept in the loop about your job’s progress.

Scalability is our secret weapon. We build relationships with production that allows our Team to scale up or down our services to meet the job’s specific requirements. Establishing these strong connections with our customers grants them greater flexibility and leverage when employing our services.

SAVAGE doesn’t just work on Short Form jobs to fill in the gaps between long form projects, we’re dedicated to short form. We love TVC’s, Content Shoots, Music Videos and everything in between. We have built our business around supplying our services to short form projects and understand what is required to ensure that the project is completed on time, on spec and on budget.

Par-KING! 👑

When we say we have a small van, we mean it. SAVAGE Film Services has Melbourne’s only Small Lighting van that comes in at just 2.05m height in its standard mode, or 1.9m in it’s ultra low profile mode (12 hours notice required). With a minimum height of 1.9m, there really is no carpark this van can’t enter.

Run ‘n’ Gun

Too many Locations per day? Cross your fingers parking plans? Shooting in urban areas? If you gotta shoot like this, the SAVAGE Small Van has you covered.

Low budget, big results.

Having a small van doesn’t mean you have to compromise. Watch our showreel to see what other productions have done with our Small Van package
