Renaissance Production Services is the first call every time for all our grip and lighting needs.  For the past six years Bret has been wonderful to work with, and the calm presence he brings to the set is priceless. When we book Renaissance we know we are getting beyond seasoned grip and gaff duties - Bret delivers fun, ingenuity, and creativity!  Bret is truly a master of the trade - helping to make a shoot move smooth, and brings a combination of hard work, optimism, and teamwork to the table.   One shoot with Renaissance and your hooked!

I have worked with Bret Wortley since 1996 and through all those years, he has always given his all on every shoot he is on.  Whether he is shooting, key gripping, gaffer, building sets, rigging,  using a jib he excels at everything he does.   He is responsible, dependable, always on time and works hard even after a 13 hour day.  I can honestly say, there have been times where I don't  know how I could have gotten through a project without his incredible expertise.

I can't say enough good things about Bret. His diverse experience, great attitude, and ability to solve problems with whatever gear is at hand make Bret the Swiss Army Knife of video production.

Years of experience and a great network make Bret the go-to guy in Colorado.  Coming to the Colorado from Back East, I've counted on Bret time and again to put together all the necessary pieces of the production puzzle.  On shoots that were large and complicated with tight schedules, he's kept a cool head and a great attitude. He always pulls together a great crew and all the toys needed to make our production happen.  I wouldn't think of working in the Colorado area without Bret and his team.

Bret Wortley brings 150% to the table.  Every time I work with him I know that I am getting more production value than I can "afford."  The key to Bret is that he's flexible and a problem solver.  When I have an issue on set that needs a solution, Bret figures it out.  He's an all-in-one package.  Key Grip, equipment, truck, crew resource...and "all-around good guy.

It is easy to recommend Bret Wortley and Renaissance Production Services. Reliable, prompt, reasonably priced and extremely responsive are just some adjectives that come to mind.  Bret is always thinking about how he might improve the shot, and he's not shy about telling you.  And he's usually right.  We are always better (and better off) with him on-set.  I wouldn't want to shoot without him.

Renaissance Production Services has one of the most comprehensive 5 Ton Grip Trucks in Colorado.  From a 1200 to 12K, I know I will be totally covered.  Owner Bret Wortley is a hard working Key Grip who always works with me regarding price but never compromises on service.

In an industry wrought with tempers, chaos, and too many things happening all at once, Bret is a steady character on set who is always there when I needed him, and often before I even knew what I needed.  He always shows up on time, with a calm grin, and a ready work ethic.  Plus, he never gets lost, which has really come in handy on the remote locations where we tend to find ourselves.  I’ve worked with him for a half dozen years and yet never cease to be calmed by his gentle spirit and awed by his balanced workflow.
