Joe is a terrific person to rent from and went out of his way to help within tight deadlines. Couldn't ask for better help.

Joe was very helpful and communicative. The shoulder mount kit was exactly as described and he even included a bag for me. Thanks!

Very down to earth and knowledgeable in his craft. A great person to work with and look forward to in the future.

Joe was very accommodating for my pickup and drop off. Equipment was in great shape and worked well. I only wish I had been told that the fan needed to be turned on to take the light to full output.

Renting from Joe / Third Party Films was a pleasure. Very accommodating and convienent. They also have a great selection of other gear. Would for sure rent from Joe again!

Thank you!
