Grips in Los Angeles, CA

Brandon Le [Daybreak Lighting & Camera]
211 (100%)
I'm a freelance cinematographer and photographer, as well as a graduate from the University of Southern California! I've been working in film for quite a few years now, practicing throughout middle and high school, and now have been working seriously for about three years. As a cinematographer, I shoot everything from corporate and event work, to music videos, and short narratives. As a photographer I find myself gravitating towards portrait work, and if you look at my Instagram I have a massive obsession with streets and alleys.

Charles Reetz
I'm from New York originally, moved west four years ago, three years spent getting my Masters in Cinematography at Chapman University and one year now in Hollywood. I invested in steadicam equipment and I like flying camera for music videos, narrative films and commercials. I work as a cinematographer as well though my work usually revolves around steadicam. I've been involved in many different positions on set both as cast and crew. I spent five years back in New York as an associate producer for EUE Screen Gems and Evamere Entertainment before I really engaged in the camera department. I'm always active and finding the positive energy in filmmaking. My reel and website are under construction but sure to be released with the amazing material my friends have been helping me with so please ask me about my work and I shall show you on Vimeo with passwords included.

Henry Coca

Yellow there my name is Henry Coca. Yes that is my real legal name from birth. I know most of you are wondering ho I got such an odd name. Well originally my older brother was supposed to be callled Henry. When he was born my dad forgot what he was supposed to be named and a neighbor reminded him it was Erick Alexander. That’s right Erick with a C and a K. Well al this was 10 years before I was born and in El Salvador. My mom was furious, and waited 10 years to name her second son, and in the USA to name me Henry G ( will not disclose my middle name). Yes it’s Henry not Enrique or Henrique, it’s H E N R Y. My sisters name is Karen and my cousins names are Larry and Denise. My cousin who was born and raised and still lives in El Salvador is named Kevin. You see El Salvador has always had a close cultural relationship with the us. Music, movies, and tv gets consumed in English. As for Coca, I have no idea how that happened. But now I call myself a filmmaker.
