Hello,

I'm planning to shoot my first Super 16mm feature. Please advice me for a reasonable rental house for a camera and sound package. Shooting for 35 days.


Thank you,

Tiffany

Please include a location so that others in your area would be able to help you. Since we don't know where you are from, there is no way to offer any recomendations.

Which country are you planning to shoot in? You may be able to work a better deal in that particular country as opposed to having the gear shipped. As you have noticed there are dozens of qualified professionals from all over the world on this board, so the more detailed information you provide in your posts, the better the quality of the information you'll receive.

All the best

I'm planning to shoot in Vietnam. I heard the hzt will be different. Therefore, it's better to rent camera package in the U.S. Is that true?

Some of these companies also have counterparts in LA:

CSC Los Angeles

Panavision Hollywood



These are also reputable companies in LA

Birns & Sawyer Hollywood

Alan Gordon Enterprises
http://www.alangordon.com/

Otto Nemenz Camera

You should also consider hiring a cameraperson with his/her package...
They can be useful if you have any problems cause they'd know their own gear...
Might be get a better deal than from a rental house also...


Eitherways
Good Luck
