Hello all,

I feel like the Larry David of cinematography.

Over a year ago I shot an independent feature. The production hired a dolly from a local production company. Besides hiring a grip with truck combination, this company is the only local place that hires out a dolly with metal tracks (besides the point). The situation is, I only found this out when trying to hire the dolly for another shoot that I am black listed from this company as the bill was not settled from the production company. I informed them that I was the cameraman on that project, not affiliated with the company, and yet as I picked up the gear I am held responsible.

My only thoughts is to appease them by offering my services maybe to shoot an epk for them. Any suggestions, remedies?

Yikes, that's a tough one. You'd think they would be a little more understanding. Was that the only time you've ever rented from them? Maybe you could pay them upfront for the rental this time?

The free EPK is a good idea.
