Camera Rental

At BLARE Films San Diego we like to be a total camera rental solution for your project. Our rates for the gear are competitive with most LA houses but since we only do “wet” rentals, we include a Director of Photography with every package. If you already have a DP for your project then our owner-operators have extensive feature experience as a DIT/DMT, 1st AC or 2nd AC. We are very flexible and our primary goal is to “make it work” regardless of the scope. This can include adding extra crew members as we can scale up to a full production crew.

Our Standard RED Epic Dragon package is perfect for indie-style productions where you want to move fast and be very flexible. This camera rental package has been designed to be superbly lightweight and is based on top of the line L Series Canon lenses. In the right hands these lenses and support gear yield amazing results without all the mass and storage requirements of the traditional cinema package. If, on the other hand the traditional cinema package fits your production, that is available below. Both packages include pre-production consultation time and total follow through to remedy any post production issues. In addition we have grip and electric packages which can accompany the camera package in our Honda Odyssey minivan or 14″ GMC box truck with lift gate.

This camera has truly brought the power of filmmaking to the hands of the masses. The RED One is capable of beautiful images right out of the box and even more than that the RAW nature of the captured footage means that a user can color and grade the format in a way that few other cameras can offer. When you rent the camera from you will be getting an experienced operator and/or tech capable of filling anyone in on the complete RED shooting and rental experience.

We love doing this and we take a lot pride in our ability to not only provide gear but a complete solution.

All over the country. All over the globe. At BLARE Films San Diego we have what you need and can put it all together and let you get back to being creative.
