Equipment rental in Cuba

Matthew Woolf
 

Hi there

I have an upcoming narrative project shooting in Cuba and know how tough it is to get things in and out of there.
Does anyone have any experience of renting gear there or bringing gear in via carnet or just laying lots of $$$?

Thanks as always

Hi all,

i have a show coming up which will require shooting marbles rolling along the floor. I haven’t had a chance to discuss the shots with the director yet, but judging from the script, it will involve numerous angles, with the marble large in frame. I’m guessing some sort of probe is the way to achieve this, but having never used them before, I could use some advice as to the various different systems available.

if anyone has experience of this type of shot that they’d care to share, I’m all ears.

Thanks,
