Since 1996, juriFILM, Inc. provides Camera Crews and EB-Teams 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 since the beginning, but we also acquired many customers from other countries after over 20 years in the TV services business.
Our LA-based camera crews will also travel to any location in the US, Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean or the Pacific Southwest. Depending on the destination, the amount of equipment and the number of people traveling, it may require certain prior steps and arrangements.
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.
