While equipment rental is our bread and butter, service is our priority. C Mount puts the focus back on the client and their production demands. Often the needs of a client reach far beyond simply checking out technical gear and sending them on their way. At C Mount, we pride ourselves on not only renting quality and reliable gear, but on catering the rental to a client’s specific wants.
Whether it is preparing multiple packages for separate crews heading in multiple directions, generating a last minute carnet, creating custom solutions for challenging technical problems, or working with less than ideal budgets, C Mount is committed to service and custom solutions.
After graduating from Montana State University in 2000 with a degree in Film and Television, Marc packed up his pickup and headed south for Los Angeles. Experienced with camera systems in feature film production, commercial production, live sports, news and documentary, he made the jump to reality television, starting with MTV’s Road Rules: Campus Crawl. With eyes open to the opportunity of the reality industry, he never looked back and traveled the world as a freelance camera operator for several years. Along the way, Marc Weichel, used his nominal life savings in 2004 to form C Mount Industries, Inc. with 2 Toshiba POV cameras and a Sony recording deck.
In addition to his responsibilities at C Mount, Marc has worked as a Director of Photography on E! Network’s Keeping up with the Kardashians and The Spin Crowd as well as VH1’s Hollywood Exes and as a camera operator on FOX’s Hells Kitchen.

The History of C Mount Industries
C Mount Industries is a privately-held corporation owned by Marc Weichel and Jason Liquori. Formed in July 2004 in Santa Monica, California, C Mount hoped to fulfill a long needed niche in specialty camera rental. Our first clients were MTV’s Ozzfest and The Challenge as well as E!’s The Simple Life.
From specialty cameras, C Mount expanded it’s niche into the specialized world of wireless video, and most recently into lighting and grip with an emphasis on LED technology. We also have HDSLR and 4K camera packages. We are located in Van Nuys, CA.
