San Diego Film Equipment is your one stop shop for camera, grip, and lighting equipment rentals.

On top of renting out our cine equipment, we stand ready to provide production crews to all qualified parties. We provide rental equipment to most of the largest local

We carry many popular items requested by independent productions: DSLR Rigs, HD monitors, filters, sliders, dollies, portable generators, makeup stations, light kits and hood mounts. We also have the equipment you need for feature films or commercial productions including: 4k & 2k HD cameras, tow plant generators, cam-lok power distribution, 2 & 5-ton grip trucks, HMI lighting, overhead diffusion frames, rigging, and large tungsten lighting units.

Thanks for helping us out with rentals for our shoot last week! Heading out to drop off everything soon.
The American Society of Cinematographers presents:
An Afternoon of Horror

Thursday, February 21, 2013
2 p.m. – 5 p.m.

With Featured Guest Speakers
Michael Goi, ASC; Daniel Pearl, ASC;
and Dean Cundey, ASC

Doors will open at 2 p.m. to give attendees an opportunity to enjoy warm conversation over hot cups of coffee before ASC members Michael Goi, Daniel Pearl and Dean Cundey dive into a bone-chilling conversation about the changing face of horror cinematography. Pearl was behind the camera on both the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) and its remake (2003); Cundey’s numerous credits in the genre include Halloween (1978) and its first sequel, Halloween II (1981); and Goi has turned his lens on all manners of evil, ranging from Hellmaster (1992) to the series American Horror Story. The cinematographers will screen selected scenes from their work and discuss their creative approach.

Advance tickets are available in the ASC Online Store for $35. Tickets are first-come, first-serve; if seats are still available on the afternoon of the event, tickets will be sold at the door for $40.

Purchase tickets at www.theasc.com
