Moving Picture Rental Provides Production Services For Chief Productions

Moving Picture Rental Provides Production Services For Chief Productions

Moving Picture Rental, Miami’s one-stop-shop for film production, served as local South Florida production services for UK Lottery’s Lottoland spot.  Chief Productions of Manchester, England traveled to Miami in late 2016 with their directors Nate Camponi and Ben Tonge and Producer Colin Offland to shoot a humorous spot  “Lotto Evolved.”  Their Lottoland job was unique.  Their goal was to show Lottoland’s lottery evolution using the concept of human development. Achieving Client’s Goals With MPR’s support, Chief Productions filmed a chimpanzee (of Wolf of Wall Street fame!) evolving from a chimp into a Neanderthal through to the modern man.  So, to achieve the look, they rented an Alexa Mini, Cooke S4/i lenses, and lighting from Moving Picture Rental. Then Chief Productions also needed a crew, studio space for extensive walking scenes, plus a primate veterinarian to oversee any scenes shot with the Chimp. MPR arranged all of these components to client’s specifications — renting studio space at Great Southern Studios and hiring local gaffers, grips and a first AD, plus a qualified vet. As a result, the shoot finished on time and produced fantastic results for the client. Providing Production Services Moving Picture Rental provides a range of production services for out-of-town agencies and production companies beyond camera, gear and grip truck rental including finding and hiring experienced crews, obtaining permits, securing locations, renting studios and casting talent. Customer Testimonials Here’s what some of MPR’s clients have to say about our production services: “Just wanted to thank you for all the hard work and help to make Monday great. It came out awesome!” – Matt Bergbauer, Miami Dolphins, Manager Dolphins Productions “Moving Picture was a perfect choice for outsourcing a crew… professional, prompt, courteous and creative.
