Our friend Shane Hurlbut and his crew at Hurlbut visuals have announced their DSLR Cinema Rentals division. The whole Hurlbut Visuals crew will be at the CineGear show in LA this weekend to tell you all about it if you're there. They're also giving away $2000 in rentals at CineGear… read all about it on their DSLR Cinema Rentals page,
I spoke with Lydia Hurlbut about the announcement and did find out they will also ship the equipment, so you don't have to be in the Los Angeles area to take advantage of the Hurlbut experience!
Los Angeles, California (April 30, 2011 ) Shane Hurlbut, ASC is proud to announce the debut of Hurlbut Visuals DSLR Cinema Rentals. This rental division was created to fill a need in the industry: to equip filmmakers with a complete DSLR camera system for digital film production. HV Rental camera packages have been developed by Shane and his team based upon their collective experience under the most extreme conditions. 31 months pioneering, trail blazing this format on 2 studio feature films, 25 short films and over a 100 commercials that comes in a small, nimble package that will deliver a film look and totes 12.5 stops of latitude with custom picture profiles. 10-ton camera trucks are not necessary with this format. Our fifteen-camera package fits in a 1-ton truck along with sound and craft service.
Each camera kit comes equipped with everything that you will need to turn this small still camera into a digital film capture device with picture styles that are tailored to your lens and sensor choice. PL and PV mounts, Leica, Zeiss, Canon, Nikon glass all Cine modified to work with focus, iris and zoom 32 pitch gears. Shane Hurlbut’s custom camera support: shoulder cam, man cam, helmet cam, stripper cam, action cam, steadicam, chipper cam, crash cam and sniper cam will bring any out of the box vision to life. Engineered to work exactly like an Arri 235, its compact and lightweight nature will morph into any camera size needed.
Most rental houses dabble in DSLR but only Hurlbut Visuals provides a fine tuned, industry tested solution fueled by innovation, creativity and experience. We are a boutique rental division that prides itself on customer service, the most updated DSLR gear, firmware and a rental staff that greets you with a smile and a can do attitude.
