Hey everyone,

I am shooting a feature in Los Angeles at the end of May and I am looking for the best places to rent the Red One. I have never rented the Red and the prices seem to vary quite a bit. Obviously I am trying to strike a balance between a reasonable price with a house that is good to work with. I was hoping that someone here might be able to give me some guidance on this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Also if anyone has a package that they rent I would like to check that out as well. Thanks!

There's Keslow Camera:

Or you could check out the local User Group. They're having a meeting at Kappa on 3-28:

There are a lot of Red owners in the group who rent their cameras, and possibly come along as DITs/Data Wranglers.

Thanks for the response John! I have never hear of Keslo Camera. I will check that out.

I guess the local user group would be a good place to start for sure. Kappa is the one that has the Red Bootcamp, right?

I appreciate it. Thanks again!

David~

You don't mention what kind of budget range you're looking at, but for indies I would suggest HD Cinema - they've provided gear for four features I've shot and I've always been very happy with both their equipment and their support. They'll be providing a RED package for another feature I'm shooting at the beginning of May and their rates are more than fair.

Yes, Kappa does the Red Bootcamp. They're also a full service post facility for Red TV work. Not sure if they farm out the film outs for features, ask them if you're interested.

If you haven't made a decision yet, check out T-stop, my school rents from them on a regular basis. They have excellent prices, great packages and are very helpful. Here is their website: www.t-stopinc.com

It looks like they're in the old Alan Gordon building on the North side of Melrose between Larchmont and Gower.
