Hawk Anamorphics Stateside

Sean Schiavolin

Does anyone know if there are any Hawk Anamorphic lenses available for rent stateside?  I

I'm directing a short film project in March and the plan is to use the Hawk Anamorphic V-Lite 16's on an Aaton Xterra.  

This brings up my other question. Has anyone successfully monitored the anamorphic image on an Aaton?  I don't believe they have an anamorphic viewfinder like Arri has.  

I realize the best solution would be an Arri 416 but we don't have one available at our disposal.  

Many thanks,

Keslow in Los Angeles has them - don’t think anywhere else does. They also rent the optical block with desqueeze.

TCS in New York has the Hawk V Lite 35mm.

We’ve rented the Hawks from VER as well but I believe they subrented through Vantage.

All the best,
