Luke took excellent care of our gear. Despite the large amount of pieces involved everything came back extremely organized and in great condition. Friendly, punctual, and accommodating. Would be happy to rent to again!

Luke was very helpful and flexible with arranging pickup and dropoff

Luke was a true professional! Gear worked perfect and pickup and drop-off were a breeze. Great resource for any of your production needs in Gowanus. Thanks again!

Worked great. Renting from Luke was a pleasant experience.

great product and owner!

Packed with great tips and insights. Luke was so gracious to share all his hard earned knowledge.

Great class! Would have preferred more actual lighting demonstrations, but Luke is a blast to learn from.

Amazing workshop and learned so much about lighting from Luke! This is so worth it and thanks to Luke and Kitsplit!

February 2019

Amazing workshop, great to get some hands-on time instructed by an industry professional.

February 2019

Very knowledgable and entertaining DP - a great start to the Kitsplit workshop series. I was expecting the class to be more hands on and was surprised that 80 or so people were there. Smaller classes that cover multiple lighting setups (that are shorter, more affordable) would be great!

February 2019

Very informative!

February 2019

A very thorough course on lighting for anyone with various levels of experience.

February 2019

This class was fun and informative. Luke had a direct, plainspoken way of sharing insights that had an overall effect of demystifying his lighting wizardry. I also took away some practical tips that I imagine I will keep forever. The mixer portion was a bit crowded, so I didn't stay long there. But overall, time and money well spent.

February 2019

Went with a friend and ran into some old contacts. Was an interesting mixer, Luke was charming and knowledgeable for sure. Felt like an appropriate price for a chill hangout with other BK filmmakers. Would love to catch another one, but I also think I have an idea for how these could be a bit more interactive without being intrusive..plz follow up. Thanks for a great time!

This was more of a talk than a course, but it was interesting nonetheless.

Good overview. Might like more tips and demos but understood it's hard to fit into a 2hr class.

Great class! Good info! Luke has some great experience and shares his insight. Good Demos and hands-on work. Might be nice to blast through a couple more set-ups.

Thanks!

Luke is the best! From the moment I picked up the Arri M18, he took time to help explain how to use it and was very thorough. He was also prompt on communication and very accommodating on the lighting rental.

Equipment was in great condition, and super flexible! Not a lot of places you can return at on 8pm on a Sunday, so thank you, Luke for that.

super informative workshop that challenged me to think about lighting differently!
