About Me

Current Waves Lighting Service offers lighting, electrical, grip, and rigging services to film and video productions in San Diego, California. My goal is to provide equipment that offers the latest in lighting techniques as well as to design and execute lighting plans that meet production and budgetary considerations. My 3-ton truck is preloaded with grip equipment that maximizes diversity on set while easily accommodating a custom lighting package.

In 1986, I started this company because of an interest in helping the film industry. I have since joined the Local 122 Union and enjoyed more than 30 years in business, using my creativity, knowledge, and experience to succeed. My rental service is affordable, easy to use, and designed to make your job even easier.
