In the early 1950’s my father Tex Jackson, a key grip at Paramount Studios, started a company which to this day continues to serve the Motion Picture & Photography industries for all their production needs.
With a huge variety of grip, production, lighting, special effects as well as a large expendables department, you can always count on Castex to offer and have in stock everything you need to make your project a complete success. Our experienced and knowledgeable management team is always ready to get you what you need quickly & efficiently. We’ll load & tie off your rental equipment the right way, so you can be on your way.
For over fifty years, Castex has been serving the Motion Picture industry with pride & will continue to do so for well in to the future. Thank you for your trust in us.

We are small, independent, and specialize in one full day tour of LA. We are here for those travelers who like to do things on their own. Unfortunately, LA is not built for easy viewing during short-term stays. We put all of our energy and effort in making this one tour meet the demands of all aboard. Also, we know you are on a budget so we are not going to charge you anywhere near the other tours – who often charge well over $100 for a day – we are the best value and best day tour in all of Los Angeles – guaranteed!
