  • We are shooting a long feature in Martinique Island and our genny is out of service. Do you have an idea of vendor around who could provide us a new one (100 /120 KW)

    The closest that I can think of would be in Trinidad.
    Try Tropical Power in Port of Spain. They are always very helpful.

    I’ve shot there once long time ago, unlikely you’ll find a portable strong enough on the Island, look for a few small ones in the city, call government house and tell them your problem. If you draw a blank, call any production company on the next island of Guadeloupe, it’s near by, much bigger, and they could fly one in.

    Hope this helps, wish I could do more.


    Yes please contact Tracey Cuesta immediately they have one available. Dom Rep

    Hi Beatrice!

    We have gennies in this class and could tranship one to you there, but I wonder if there are not a number of hotels that have generator back ups you could just tie into? As long as your HMI’s are FF you should be ok, and if your tungstens are a concern; just stay away from hispeed and odd shutter angles.

    Let me know what you want to do. I can get you a gennie with cable at USD 400 per day for a long term rental that is balanced, 56db and comes with camlock out and a 50 meter 4/0 cable run. Plus shipping and customs, of course…

    They are for rent or sale which ever you need they can help!

    Happy shooting!! :-)



    The closest, reliable vendor would be in Puerto Rico (1 hr. 50 mins away). However, what are you doing shooting on that island when we in Cuba have all of the equipment, crews, and landscape you would need for your feature, at HALF THE COSTS? Benecio Del Toro was just filming here. Email me and we’ll get you set-up in a much better location here. Best, Michael

    Colombia is very close and is the country with the most equipment.

    They can call Congo Films in Bogota (the biggest rental house in the area):
