Since 1996, juriFILM, Inc. offers Camera Crews (#EB Teams in LA) in PAL and large-format HD or 4K in Los Angeles and along the entire US West Coast. The company’s founders are of German descent, so we have been focusing on German clients with German-speaking crews since the beginning, but we also acquired many clients from other countries after over 20 years in the TV services business.
We also have an option for a 1-man camera crew (#Kameramann 1-Mann Team in LA) if the smaller scope of a job calls for such solution.
juriFILM's Los Angeles headquarters are centrally located in Culver City. From here it's only a 20-25 minute drive to LAX Airport, Century City, Santa Monica, West Hollywood or Venice Beach, making it convenient for producers to reach popular filming locations or choose locations for their local hotels based on their preferences or production logistics.
Our LA-based camera crews will also travel to any location in the US, Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean or the Pacific Southwest if requested with reasonable upfront notice. Depending on the destination, the amount of equipment and the number of people traveling, it may require certain prior steps and arrangements.

Our LA-based EB-Teams/ENG-Crews (camera operator/sound assistant) provide creative services to foreign and domestic television/broadcast or film productions, independent and documentary filmmakers as well as commercial productions, corporate clients or clients seeking solutions for web-oriented content. We are also able to provide a line-producer/reporter/producer who leads the camera crew on their assignment.
Almost all of our crews in our creative pool are fluent in both, English and German, and have a lot of insight and knowledge especially on our home turf here in Southern California.
We own almost all the mainstream equipment required to fulfill our assignments in terms of camera, sound, lighting, grip and vehicles as well as some specialized gear. If necessary, we will rent additional equipment from local vendors.
juriFILM also provides non-linear editing services on MacPro-based AVID Media Composer or Adobe Premiere software (please see Equipment section).
We offer FTP and HTTP file uploads (within certain limitations).
Last but not least, we do offer stringer/fixer/researcher and line-producing services upon request.
