We truly enjoyed working from the Helios, the attention to detail to make it an Eco friendly asset to our industry should be commended. The quiet workspace you get when running on the solar power is delightful! Rob was pleasant to be around and always willing to help out. Thank you Rob and King Kong for bringing us the Helios!

The drivers were awesome to be with.  Hard working drivers!!   It really stands out when the drivers jump in to help set up base camp, and tear it down.  Not to mention always having a fresh green tea for me just when I needed it every time.  They really were great and I’d ask for them anytime we get vehicles from you. Thanks!

Rusty, Bruce and the guys at King Kong were a crucial asset to my photoshoot.  They took a lot of stress off of my plate and came through when I needed them, allowing me to focus 100% on the production.  Without a doubt, King Kong is now my go-to for production vehicles and I do not hesitate to recommend them to my colleagues.  And, not only is Rusty the best and most helpful driver I have ever had the pleasure of working with, he is also awesome with a fog machine!

We’ve used the Helios twice now and have been quite impressed each time.  It has everything production could want AND it’s earth friendly! We will use the Helios on every job in which we need a moho.

The Helios is a great motorhome. Not only is it energy efficient but it offers a large space for production to work in. The copy machine is great because you can wirelessly print and make color copies and send faxes. The satellite phones came in handy when we realized we didn’t have any cell service on location. We received several compliments throughout the shoot day. Crew walked into the motorhome in awe of such a beautiful space.

I just wanted to send you a quick message and let you know how amazing Rich is. I have hired motos from all over and this was by far our best experience. Really nice to work with great people

City of LA to waive TV pilot fees to encourage more production

Hi Everyone,

Whether this will be difinitly helpful or not we testified today in support the move by the City below. The City is looking for anyway they can encourage TV network drama production to remain here in LA. As you know when the State incentives were passed in 2009 the focus was on cable series and feature films which we were losing rapidly. Since them network drama and especially pilots have seen a drastic decline (even though improving this year) and our focus will be  on expansion, network drama and larger budget feature production in our next State film incentive push…

Till then we focus on whatever we can do to keep those jobs here:

“The Los Angeles City Council today unanimously passed a measure eliminating fees that TV pilots pay to film in the city. The politicians also passed a measure to waive similar fees for the first year for any LA-filmed pilot that is picked up for a series. Proposed last year by Councilman and Hollywood-friendly mayoral candidate Eric Garcetti, the measure is designed to stop the siphoning of production and jobs from  LA  to other cities and regions. Last year, permitting organization FilmLA reported that less than half of primetime pilots were now being shot in LA.

Even with a city budget estimated to be $327 million in the red, the loss of the fees won’t hurt LA very much. The city collected approximately $231,000 in fees related to TV pilot production in the 2011-2012 fiscal year. That loss in revenue was small, said Garcetti’s argument for the waivers, because encouraging pilots to film in LA could have a greater spillover effect to the local economy – especially if the pilots become series and stay in LA. While pilot production, like almost all production, has fallen in LA in recent years it is seeing a bit of an upturn. FilmLA said earlier this year that pilot production in 2012 was actually up 2.2% from what it was in 2011.”
