Andy's committment to excellence is his
top priority. Working within budgets, managing a tight crew or working solo, Andy always delivers the goods. The owner operator of a 3 ton and 1 ton lighting package rest assured Andy's gear is well maintained, his presence on set always appreciated, always trying to make a shot better. Andy Cook has been my first choice gaffer for several years, when you come to the Midwest for your production you'll want to make Andy your "first choice" as well.

Thank you Andy for driving through the ice and snow from Chicago all the way to Iowa to help us out with our production. That may be par for the course for you, but for those of us from LA it is going way above and beyond the call of duty. Your experience and great attitude was very much appreciated. Warm Regards,
