Gas, Grass, or Glass... No One Rides For Free!

It was a beautiful, sunny day in Hollywoodland, California; F11 Rental's proprietor was cruising back to Las Vegas, when he spotted a stranger on the side of the road. This stranger had his bindle and bowler hat, and was sepia in tone. With his free hand, the stranger motioned eastward with his thumb, hoping for a ride through the hot and desolate Mojave Desert. Perhaps feeling bad for the stranger, our proprietor pulled to the side of the road, while all other vehicles zoomed past the beleaguered man. 

The proprietor rolled his window down, "Where you heading?" "How far you going?" the stranger inquired. The proprietor chuckled, "Well, I'm headed to Vegas, but, the ride isn't free." The stranger looked a bit perplexed. "Gas, grass, or glass; no one rides for free." the proprietor said confidently. The stranger thought a moment, then, with a twinkle in his eye, reached into his bindle and pulled out six Schneider-KREUZNACH Cine-Xenar III prime lenses, "Will these get me to Vegas?" The proprietor grinned, "Saddle up, partner."

So, now we have an 18mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 75mm, and 95mm Schneider-KREUZNACH Cine-Xenar III lens- and they should be available for your rental enjoyment soon.

Exciting New Gear For Rent!

Cue the lights and music, draw back the curtains, and hang on to your seat... we have awesome new gear!

The jib mounts easily on one of our larger tripods (Think Hercules), and holds one of our many 100mm ball heads. The MoveUp15 can handle up to 33 pounds of camera, and has a range of 75 to 109 inches. This jib will give you dope Hollywood moves, without the trouble of a full size jib and crew- how bout dat!?

Holy Guacamole, It's Busy! #videoproduction #gripgear #greenscreen

Spring is a busy season for Las Vegas video production, and the same goes for rental houses. The kiddos are in school, studying, or Tweeting, or whatever they do these days... And, mom and dad are jet-bound for various conferences across the country. One of the busiest conference and expo towns in America is right here: fabulous Las Vegas, NV. We here at F11 Rentals are all about teamwork and taking care of our clients. Such was the situation last week, when the boss happily volunteered his time after hours for a delivery to one of our dear friends turned clients on the UNLV campus. We kept our spirits high, and the gear even higher as we delivered on time (as far as we could tell) with smiles on our faces (to distract from the bags under our eyes). If you're in need of the best video production rental gear in Las Vegas, look no further than your amigos here at F11 Rentals. Adios.

F11 Rentals Checks Out New Cars!

Last week, F11 Rentals sent a beloved Canon C300 Mark II over to the Wynn and Encore Resorts where some shiny new cars were being unveiled to some eager spectators. There were pans, tilts, and rack focus action as the super-fast 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm 16:9 CMOS sensor captured all the action. Coupled with superb Canon L-Series lenses, and an able bodied DP, the footage came out great, and the client was more than happy. Bonus: there were also some celebrities floating around- which is always exciting! For your next Las Vegas video production, look no further than F11 Rentals for the best Las Vegas video rental gear.

F11 Rentals Enjoys A Sure Thing

F11 Rentals knows that it's tough out there, and we need you to know that we understand, and we're here for you. That's why we've invested in the Action and Target Modules for our Edelkrone SliderPlus Pro. Math is almost as scary as audio, and it's as useful as snow at a BBQ, that's why Edelkrone has taken almost all math and thinking out of slide moves and time-lapse photography.

In all seriousness, a lot of times, artists want and need to move quickly when inspiration and opportunity strike, and the fine, intelligent folks across the pond at Edelkrone have created amazing pieces of gear to accompany the Edelkrone SliderPlus to enable accurate, precise, and guaranteed slide moves, time-lapses, and everything in between. The intelligent software does all the math and calculations for you! We cannot wait to get the gear out to test it and learn all about it so we can pass the knowledge and gear off to you. We'll let you know when it's available for rent.

F11 Rentals Plays Well With Others #sonya7sii #lasvegasvideoproduction

While F11 Rentals prides itself on being able to provide complete video production rental gear packages to our clients, we know that many times it's just a few pieces of gear that's needed. It could be that piece of gear that isn't easy to travel with, something that's maybe more unique so fewer people own it, or even that piece of gear that was forgotten. Either way, we are happy to fulfill any request, big or small. One such rental happened last week, where, due to travel restrictions, F11 Rentals was able to outfit a crew with tripods, lighting, audio, and a few miscellaneous pieces of gear. Our gear plays well with others, and is always on it's best behavior, so we knew our client would be pleased with the experience. If you have Las Vegas video production rental gear needs, just give us a shout, and we're happy to help.

F11 Rentals Stacks Some Lights! #lasvegasvideoproducton #productionlife

I'm going to be honest, I'm not really sure what day it is. We here at F11 Rentals have been so busy, we've lost all sense of time and space. I myself have gone as far as considering tattooing my name, phone number, and address on my forearm just to be safe. Either way, we're having a blast getting all our gear into the hands of eager and talented film makers. Just the other day, we sent out a couple of our 1x1 LED Light Panel kits, and received a cool photo of them being stacked (which is one of there cool features). These panel lights are light weight, powerful, and feature a 3200-5600 temp. spectrum. Make sure to schedule a couple for your upcoming Las Vegas video production rental, as they're so versatile and valuable.

An Interesting Take of RED Helium 8K #redcamera #8k #redcinema

In an effort to avoid doing any real work, I was perusing Al Gore's "internet", and came across an interesting article from our friends over at "No Film School".  Mark Toia, advertising photographer turned advertising cinematographer/director, gives us an interesting and informative look into his experiences and opinions of shooting 8K on the new RED Helium. I know FiveSix Productions already brought the Helium up, but this is pretty cool... I'll let the video speak for itself.

Like Mr. Toia said, most people can't tell the difference between 6K and 8K eithout some guidance and/or the proper screen/projector; and content trumps production quality at the end of the day, but the quality and improvement of 8K is very cool. Here's his Vimeo page where you can let your eyes view some of his amazing work. F11 Rentals doesn't have a Helium yet (can't remember where I left my pot of gold), but we do have a fantastic RED Epic Dragon that will do some pretty sweet 6K... if that would work better than your iPhone.... Bill Aylward, looking at you buddy.
