Long time reader, first-time poster. I'm gearing up to shoot a student short during the first two weeks of June and we have been looking high and low for a set of anamorphic lenses to shoot with. I was wondering if anyone here has any leads on anamorphic lens owners in the New York City area?
I am already aware of the various rental houses that have lenses, but we're also trying to reach out to some private owners/DP's who might have anamorphic sets and would be willing to rent them out. Looking for something a little more vintage, along the lines of: Lomos, Kowas, Cooke Xtal, or anything of the sort.
Appreciate any and all recommendations! Thanks.
