www.lensworksrentals.com https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=1753887&trk=nav_responsive_tab_profile Founded in 2013 Lensworks Rentals is a Boutique Lens and camera rental house specializing in vintage and hard to find optics for cinematography and still photography. We Specialize in vintage rehoused lenses such as Super Baltars and Cooke Speed Panchros, as well as Anamorphic lenses. It is our goal, to provide you, the cinematographer with the best possible optics out there to use on your production. We have spent a lot of time and money cherry picking the best lenses out there and coupling them with superior rehousing and mechanics for demanding shoots. Many of the lenses we work with are from the 1920s-1970s which provide special/unique looks and feel lost by todays digital sensors. Looking forward, we plan to offer camera and support packages very soon! We are committed to delivering the best optical and capture tools to the professional creative market We strive to carry the rare, uncommon and awesome glass you have been looking for the solidify your creative “look”. In the future we will be having some sets for DSLR shooting (leica R lenses, M42 lenses) and special anamorphic lenses in addition to our current offering. We operate in the USA and are currently headquartered in Salt Lake City, UT

Mission: To provide awesome optics and top notch services to directors of photography

Watch out! Mad Scientist at work. Please keep them well fed and hydrated. Risk of bites if not properly treated.
It's always good to see how well season professionals approach technical issues, and discuss solutions. #NeverStopLearning

BTW the lense it's a thing I had not seen before, Meru anamorphic, gotta love those non mainstream glass.

One of the greatest gatherings of lens technicians we’ve ever seen. Huge thanks to Michael Koerner and his crew at Koerner Camera @lensmonger. Another shoutout to @band_pro, @angenieuxlenses, @zeisscinematography, and of course @ducloslenses for hosting service training and sharing knowledge. Looking forward to seeing you all again next year at the #pacificnorthwestlenssummit . (If you’re in this pic, comment below and I’ll tag you!)

GAY STRANGER (post production)
This is my 3rd collaboration with Tyler Reeves and I feel like we both grow so much with each film. This short begins and ends with this dinner scene, but the majority of the film is a dream/fantasy sequence that takes place inside the young boy’s mind. This was shot at the bar set at Nvisionate Studios and I was a bit worried of how it would look with the red walls and limited production design, but I am extremely happy with what we achieved. Shot on Alexa Classic + Canon K35’s.
