Kit & Gear
Anticipate Media offers a fairly wide range of Independent Filmmaker's Gear. We specialize in 2k/HD production in house, but have access to the latest 4K gear if necessary. Our kit is generally only available for Wet Hire (i.e., including a professional to work with the gear or watch it) as part of Paul's Day Rate (see Rates & Services). Dry Hire (i.e., equipment rental without a person) is available under specialized circumstances to friends of Anticipate Media and close colleagues, at competitive rates. However for most gear-only rental we recommend Rule Boston Camera for all of your professional needs. Of course, any production coordinated by Anticipate Media comes with full access to our in-house kit at discounted rates.
We have a significantly full-range kit in house, including (this list is not complete and is only representative):
A full range of fast prime and zoom lenses including those from Canon (including L series) and others covering a full range from 11mm to 400mm.
Multiple Super 35mm Professional Cinema Cameras
Canon Cinema EOS C300 and Canon Cinema EOS C100 Super 35mm Interchangable Lens Digital Cinema Cameras - these highly praised cameras are the opening salvo in Canon's new cinematography line. Considered among the best 1080P cameras available, both have 12 stops of dynamic range, have an image suitable for the big screen, yet edit quickly. These cameras have been used on productions ranging from Saturday Night Live to The Discovery Channel. They are ideal full HD cinematic production tools. Read more about the camera line here.
