C Mount was formed in July 2004 in Santa Monica, California by Marc Weichel. A pioneer in reality TV, Marc recognized that production content creation column was exploding as decentralized distribution channels were becoming popular and equipment was becoming more accessible. He realized the unfulfilled niche for video equipment rental services that supported complex logistical requirements and that was based on white glove customer service. Since then we have been known in the industry for supporting the demands of reality TV productions, with some of our first clients were MTV’s Ozzfest and The Challenge as well as E!’s The Simple Life. In 2006, Jason Liquori joined C Mount as a co-founder and EVP of Innovation. Jason’s expertise in custom solutions for POV, underwater, hidden cameras and arrays allowed us to take our full service offerings to the next level. Since then our clients have taken us around the world to implement our creative innovations for their productions.
The early part of Marc’s career was focused on feature film production, commercial production, live sports, news and documentary productions where he earned his stripes. In early 2000, Marc recognized early on the power of Reality TV as a game changing industry trend and he immediately shifted his focus to working on and supporting many of the initial hits, including MTV’s Road Rules, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Hell’s Kitchen, The Spin Crowd to name a few. Traveling the world, he saw first hand how the trend was developing and recognized a need for highly dynamic production solutions and equipment rentals to support these niche productions. It was then in 2004 that Marc founded C Mount to accommodate the unique needs of Reality TV productions. The high level of customer service and unique, custom solutions required to support Reality TV began to attract production companies looking not only for higher levels of customer service but for innovative solutions for POV and hidden cameras.
Since 2004 Marc has been dedicated to C Mount’s clients and to building one of the fastest growing Camera Rental Houses in Hollywood, ensuring that the high level of customer service that he founded the company on remains one of C Mount’s core values.
Prior to Jason’s joining C Mount, his career in television spanned many genres including news, sports, live event coverage, reality shows and documentaries, national commercials, indie films and underwater photography. His versatile skill set has taken him all over the world working in over 40 countries and 40 states as Director, DP, Technical Supervisor, Wireless Video Technician, POV rigger, Sound Mixer and Lighting Tech.
In 2006, Jason joined us to lead the Innovation team. Since that time he has successfully positioned C Mount as a leading custom gear solutions provider. There is no challenge too great for Jason and his team. Be it underwater arrays or extreme car rigs, he and his team are ready to help your production have the edge it needs to make the impact you desire.
