Freelance Production Services | Freelance Videgrapher | Freelance Gaffer | Freelance Producer

While we love providing full-service production for companies and marketing departments, members of the Simz production team also frequently work as freelance production team members for other local production companies and out-of-town companies looking for day hires.

James frequently works as a freelance videographer/director of photography and also as a freelance gaffer along with a 3/4-ton production van stocked full with a wide array of lighting and grip gear available for shoots throughout California.

Leslie can support crews in pre-production to help location scout, set up local crews for out-of-town production companies, work as a freelance producer for day-of shoots, and she is also handy and experienced with their teleprompter software and hardware.

While most of their work is done in northern California, both James and Leslie work anywhere planes fly!
