At your fingertips...

Retrospec Films is a Video Production Company.  And to make videos, you need cameras and equipment.  As obvious as that sounds, many video production companies don't own their own gear.  When it comes time to shoot, they will need to rent from rental production houses or companies like ours.  Owning the equipment not only provides obvious cost savings advantages for our clients, it gives our team the unique privilege to experiment with new ideas, techniques, and filmmaking solutions outside of paid client projects.  Having this first hand access, and the freedom to experiment, fosters an environment for innovation and creativity - which, we believe, immediately transfers to our clients and their projects.
