Since its launch in 2012, Cinder Lighting & Grip has provided lighting & grip rental service to filmmakers across the Greater Atlanta Area and the Southeast United States. With the film equipment industry constantly evolving, we aim to both keep our inventory up to date with the latest technology and offer it affordably for filmmakers on a budget.
Owners, Ben Lambeth & Gabe Pippas, founded Cinder while studying at Georgia Tech University. The two met at the campus film club, BuzzStudios, where their partnership began. Together they made films and often encountered the same issue, "How are we going to fit that in this budget" When it came to lighting they wouldn't compromise so they began buy lights on their own. From Ben's dad's garage, they began lending their gear to friends which naturally turned into it's own business they named Cinder years later!
