  1. Once again, we’re excited to bring you Moving Picture Rental’s Holiday Gift Guide for Filmmakers and Crew. Being filmmakers ourselves, we know that we’re a slightly tough crowd to find gifts for, so we’ve come up with this guide to help you find your filmmaker friend a gift he or she will love. We’ve included a wide variety of price points, from stocking stuffers to $179 tote bags. This list will be sure to “short circuit” gift shopping for your favorite filmmaker! (In case you’re wondering, we’re doing this as a public service, with no affiliation to the products listed. We just happen to love them.) If you prefer to watch the video version of this guide (or send it to a friend), check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFMp...ture=emb_title 4-in-1 Precision Screwdriver by Klein- $10 Klein makes amazing tools, and this precision screwdriver is not the exception! Instead of carrying 4 screwdrivers in your kit, take only one. Four different non-magnetic tips in one tool include #0 and #00 Phillips plus 1/8-Inch (3.2 mm) and 3/32-inch (2.4 mm) Slotted tips. Get it here. YOSHIHARU HAMONO Penato Knife- $12 The century-old Japanese firm Yoshiharu Cutlery earned its stripes handcrafting chisels. Now it makes elegant knives like this pocketable specimen. Its take on a Kiridashi utility knife pairs a carbon-steel blade with a brass body. Keep it on your desk to slice open packages, or simply display it as a sharp conversation piece. Get it here. Film Leader mug -$18.00 Film Leader Co makes goodies for filmmakers so they can have more “swag.” They make mugs, tees, tanks, button-downs, and backpacks. Gift your friend a mug stylized with film motives so he/she can look the part! Get it here. Streamlight 66608 250 Lumen Microstream USB Rechargeable Flashlight- $29.99 When an iPhone is not bright enough, this is THE flashlight that will save you. This tiny flashlight is big on power and features super brought (250 Lumens). It runs 3. 5 hours on low and includes a USB cord for charging. With the clip, attach it to the visor of your baseball cap, and now it is a headlamp! Get it here. LEATHERMAN Raptor Emergency Response Shears with Strap Cutter & Glass Breaker- $79.95 I find myself reaching for a pair of scissors more and more these days instead of a knife! This handy scissor comes equipped with 6 tools, including folding emergency response shears, a strap cutter, a ring cutter, a ruler, an oxygen tank wrench, and a carbide glass breaker. It also brings a belt carrier that comes in handy while working on the set. Get it here. Ultimate Ears Boom 3- $125.00 UE’s Boom series is my all-time favorite Bluetooth speaker. The new Boom 3 inherits that portable party crown. It’s the same size as a tallboy of Budweiser, but it sounds like a magnum of Veuve Clicquot—which is to say, outstanding. The waterproof design (it floats!) comes in a variety of beach-ready colors. Get it here. EVERYDAY TOTE PACK by Peak Designs -$179.95 On our list for the second year in a row, Peak Designs now makes a super functional tote bag for filmmakers. With a laptop and tablet compartment as well as a place for small items like your EarPods, this bag is great for hauling around your portable production office clutter. Get it here. Shooting in Florida? We make it easy for you. We’re your Florida One-Stop-Shop with Cameras, Lighting, Production Services, and Crew. We have offices in Orlando, Fort Myers, and Miami. Happy Holidays.
  2. Florida is opening up for production, and we’re ready with your camera crew. Our camera crews are PPE equipped in Miami and ready for action. We have one person film crews for home productions as well as COVID-19 solutions for creating content. Or, shoot in our open-air studio in South Florida. We have single operator / DP camera units available in Miami and Fort Lauderdale ready to shoot! We are no strangers to one-man-band camera crews, as we’ve been operating like this for years! If you need gear and your budget is tight, please let us know! We have a crew ready to work for your next production! We are sanitizing cameras and sound gear before drop-offs and providing 24/7 support for technical issues. DIY: Need to shoot, but don’t need a camera crew? Self-filming camera packages are also available for rent, plus 24/7 phone support with FaceTime and zoom are at a moment’s notice away. We can provide a crew member who can control cameras from an adjoining room for ‘follow focus,’ camera ‘run and stop,’ zoom control, and monitoring directors feed. Sound also can be operated from remote places using only overhead shotgun mics to avoid close contact with talent. Social Distancing Friendly Locations We can conduct location scouting and have a current library of social distancing friendly locations that we have been using for years. Shooting permits are available in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and Fort Myers for production! Maintain social distancing with these outdoor interview locations. We can provide fans to keep the talent fresh and comfortable. Social distancing friendly locations for interviews and exercise videos. No need to travel to South Florida for your shoot If you need a producer on the ground because you do not want to travel on airplanes, we have many seasoned veterans who can conduct vibrant and compelling interviews with our camera crews. As well, Camera Crew Miami has an open-air studio for camera crews with lots of external airflow for interviews, photography, product shots with lighting and grip in included! Lots of fresh air and the size of the space allows for social distancing. We are ready to make your production safe and productive with our resources, ideas, and camera crews that can happen anywhere in Florida!
