Hurlbut Visuals Launches New DSLR Rental Division at Cine Gear 2011

written by Shane Hurlbut, ASC


I want to invite all of you to Cine Gear 2011. Hurlbut Visuals is launching our new DSLR Cinema Rentals division with new rigs and out of the box innovation. Lydia, the Elite Team and I will be there to answer any questions that you might have. We will share our time efficient system for HDSLR cameras and newly innovated rigs. Inside the booth, there is a teaser which gives a glimpse into the future of DSLR rig technology and redefines the way the camera is being used.

Paramount Studios is an amazing location for this event. We are located in Stage 18, Booth location S209A. It is easy to spot right across from the Arri Alexa booth and Kino Flo.

We are giving away a one day free rental in our Cine Gear Twitter contest. Stop by and visit us at our booth to enter. The contest will require simply filling out a form and tweeting (a specific hash tag and wording will be provided). The contest winner will be picked in a random drawing by Monday, June 6, 2011. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to have access to $2,000 worth of gear! You can follow us @HurlbutVisuals for live updates on the contest.

The Elite Team and I will be sitting down and chatting with Rod Clark, Director of Marketing from Teradek.com on Teradek TV. We will answer questions and share our collective experience with the DSLR platform.  The Elite Team is first on Friday June 3rd at 8:00pm and I will be on Saturday June 4th at 11am. Thank-you Rod for this wonderful opportunity.

Here is our press Release on the show. See you all at Cine Gear.

Los Angeles, California (April 30, 2011 ) Shane Hurlbut, ASC is proud to announce the debut of Hurlbut Visuals DSLR Cinema Rentals. This rental division was created to fill a need in the industry: to equip filmmakers with a complete DSLR camera system for digital film production. HV Rental camera packages have been developed by Shane and his team based upon their collective experience under the most extreme conditions. 31 months pioneering, trail blazing this format on 2 studio feature films, 25 short films and over a 100 commercials that comes in a small, nimble package that will deliver a film look and totes 12.5 stops of latitude with custom picture profiles. 10-ton camera trucks are not necessary with this format. Our fifteen-camera package fits in a 1-ton truck along with sound and craft service.

Each camera kit comes equipped with everything that you will need to turn this small still camera into a digital film capture device with picture styles that are tailored to your lens and sensor choice. PL and PV mounts, Leica, Zeiss, Canon, Nikon glass all Cine modified to work with focus, iris and zoom 32 pitch gears. Shane Hurlbut’s custom camera support: shoulder cam, man cam, helmet cam, stripper cam, action cam, steadicam, chipper cam, crash cam and sniper cam will bring any out of the box vision to life. Engineered to work exactly like an Arri 235, its compact and lightweight nature will morph into any camera size needed.

Most rental houses dabble in DSLR but only Hurlbut Visuals provides a fine tuned, industry tested solution fueled by innovation, creativity and experience. We are a boutique rental division that prides itself on customer service, the most updated DSLR gear, firmware and a rental staff that greets you with a smile and a can do attitude.
