Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

I am going to be shooting in Santa Rosa, about an hour north of San Francisco and am going to need to rent a RED camera with DIT, lenses, Fisher 10, grip and lighting truck and 4-5 crew members.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Chad

Art Adams is a great resource for crew and equipment in the Bay Area. I believe he even has crew and contact info on his website. www.artadams.net

Hey Chad,

For Red rental in the Bay Area, check out: http://chatercamera.com/ and http://videofax.com/. Both have 12x Optimos, Ultra Primes, and Superspeeds. Chater also has Master Primes. If you need Cooke S4s, go here: http://lucamera.com/

For a Fisher 10, go here: http://dtcgrip.com/
In addition, here's a complete film services directory for the Bay Area: http://reeldirectory.com/

If you need G&E crew, try these guys (from the reel directory listings):

Jon Fontana
Fontana Film & Video Services
(415) 505-0168
(415) 505-0168 Cell
Description: Gaffer/ Key Grip with 1, 3, & 5 Ton Grip Trucks. Lights, Grip Equipment, Generators, Dollies, Arri Hmis, Briese Lights...

Joe Mendoza
The Little Giant
(415) 672-0148
Description: Key Grip/ Gaffer with access to any size truck one ton, Three and Four Ton Grip Trucks No problem. Everything you need HMI's, KINOS, Tungsten, Dollies, Generators, whatever. And...hablo espanol.

Both Jon and Joe have their own guys. In the Bay Area, we don't normally have separate G&E departments on smaller jobs, but instead one gaffer/key grip and then grips who swing.

Also, when is your shoot and what will you be shooting? I might be available to crew. Call me. :)

Thanks guys.

This is either going to happen next week or in a month. (Why is it always like that! :-) )

Hey, at least it's an improvement! Park City is a fun town.
