Greg Unger

Gaffer in Los Angeles, CA, USA
Hi I’m Greg 🙂

Jack of all trades. That's me. I'm just as comfortable lighting your set as I am prepping cameras and pulling focus. I started in the business as a camera operator shooting live music performances and then went on to load grip trucks and work as an intern prep tech at Shane's rental house, Revolution Cinema Rentals. I have a great crew available for your next project. I have established relationships with vendors in and around Los Angeles. Let's chat. "You're a damn good gaffer! Thank you so much for problem solving with me and always having a good attitude." -Santiago Calogero Director/Cinematographer https://www.santiagocalogero.com/ "Greg was a total asset on set. As my AC, he was there when I needed him. His knowledge of cameras of all kinds including their menu systems, is amazing. He is quick with lens changes and always around when the camera moves. He is also a skilled camera operator. He shot camera for 2nd unit on Emerald Run. I would recommend Greg for all my current and future projects." -Michael Caradonna Producer/Cinematographer http://actiononcamera.com/ "I can only say how grateful I am to my crew! They broke their backs making this film possible, bringing not only an amazingly professional and creative input to the film, but also a great attitude and energy on set! Really grateful to my gaffer Greg Unger." -Ignacio Walker Director/Cinematographer http://www.chronoscinema.com/director/ignacio-walker-en/

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “Press On” has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race. -CALVIN COOLIDGE
