Film Crew! LifePower Can Ease Location Work

Film Crew!  LifePower Can Ease Location Work

Our good friend, colleague, and First AD Gary Sales stopped by Moving Picture Rental with a cool new product called LifePower that’s perfect for people working in film. LifePower is a terrific new technology that can power any 110 volt device using a battery — the same battery that’s used in Tesla cars. For film people working on location LifePower is super handy.  It powers laptops, lights, a printer, etc. Plus, it’s small and affordable. Film friends of Moving Picture Discount Code If you’re interested, LifePower is offering a special “friends of Moving Picture” discount code.  Email LifePower’s US rep Gary Sales at Gary@lifepower.be to ask him any questions or to make any comments about the product. For hi-speed info or quantity ordering you may phone him directly at: 347-470-4250. It’s also currently available at third party retailers: BHPhoto.com, Amazon.com, and coming soon to: Adorama & Abel Cine. Happy shooting everyone and be safe wherever and whatever you’re doing.

Sharks Beware! We Now Carry Gates Underwater Housing Products

It’s been a big month for us with Gates Underwater Products.  First, we were sent this awesome frame grab of Great White in action by our colleague Mark Reid, Underwater DOP, with our Gates Underwater Products Deep Dragon Housing. Shot in Guadalupe last month. ‪ Next, we attended Gates Deep Dragon underwater housing event at Red Digital Cinema Camera Company with legendary Underwater DP Andy Cassagrande.  It was nice bumping into Mike McGowan, DP, who is also certified to shoot with this awesome tool! See Andy’s work and bold story here. We also had Underwater Director of Photography, Alex Jaramillo prep the Gates Deep Dragon housing this past week at Moving Picture Rental for a shoot in South Florida. Hopefully no Great Whites will join the party!! The Gates DEEP DRAGON Digital Cinema Housing is designed for Red Digital Cinema’s EPIC DRAGON camera — with 6K lines of resolution, more than 16 stops of dynamic range and native 2000 ISO — DEEP DRAGON offers exceptional handling of challenging underwater lighting conditions. Based on Gates sibling DEEP EPIC, new accessories are added to the DEEP DRAGON kit including collapsing Tripod Legs; Light Bar for mounting ULCS, TLC or other light arms; and Shade Extensions for the RED PRO External Monitor housing.
