Lorne has now saved me on two last minute audio fiascos. These sound blankets were a game changer. Thanks for being so flexible!

Lorne L is a great guy. Super professional. Blanket for sound worked great

Lorne was really flexible with pick up and drop off. Lights worked out really well for the shoot I needed .Really liked how simple it was to carry the set up.

Had a fantastic time renting from Lorne. The Arri Light kit was exactly what I needed and the gear was in great shape. Lorne was also super flexible with my pick up and drop off times. Will definitely rent from him again in the future
