Hero

Award-winning cinematography services 
& cinema camera rental in Western Canada.

Our cinema camera rental and production services packages are built on the industry-leading Sony F55 4K body, with Canon 
Cine-Servo and Cinema Prime lenses, as well as aerials and underwater video production solutions. 
Our multiple Gemini and CSA-winning cinematographers and videographers are SFOC-certified for aerial drone operations, with extensive and recent experience of filming for blue-chip documentary in Canada and abroad.

Whether you are looking for a fully equipped cinematographer, drone aerial cinematography, or simply a cinema camera rental package, we can provide. With multiple Sony F55 camera bodies in stock, we can equip complex and demanding studio or location shooting. These cameras produce results comparable to Red and Arri cinema cameras, and are extremely reliable in demanding field conditions. We also stock high-quality Canon Cine-Servo lenses, perfect for documentary and natural history shooting, including a 17-120mm workhorse and the uniquely powerful Canon 50-1000mm T5 with 1.5x extender. Our video production rentals also extend to professional Sachtler tripods, jibs, dolly systems, Steadicams and location sound recording gear.

Our camera and film gear production rentals are based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, but we are able to ship anywhere in Canada and across international borders for longer-term rentals. We have experience with bonded carnet arrangements, and our film gear has travelled to many international locations.

If you require drone services, we stock the latest DJI professional grade 4K drone platforms and our cinematographers are both experienced and SFOC-certified. We have filmed aerials for broadcast in conditions ranging from extreme cold to desert heat, over sea and in high winds. We do not rent our drones without an operator, although you will find that our day rates for cinematographer and drone are very competitive.

In addition to camera rental and film gear rental, our cinematographer services are unparalleled. Daron Donahue is one of Canada’s most decorated cinematographers, with multiple Gemini, Canadian Screen Award, and AMPIA Award wins for his cameras work. Daron has served as Director of Photography for many broadcast and feature documentaries, including for 5 one-off docs and 2 mini-series for CBC’s The Nature of Things. Daron comes fully equipped with our camera and lens package, including drone, and is available for one-day and multiple day shoots, in Canada and abroad. Daron is based in Edmonton, Alberta.

If you are unfamiliar with shooting locations and conditions in Western Canada, and you need the support of experienced and well-connected local filmmakers, we can help. Having the reassurance of knowledgeable professionals, equipped with high-quality and reliable film gear, can make the difference between a wasted trip and a terrific shoot. Don’t hesitate to call or write.
