As a DOP I have good connections with Panalux.
I have many years experience working in the Camera Department and am experienced with both film (16mm, Super 16, 35mm) and Video (both Digital (inc: Digibeta and HDCAM/HDCAM SR) and Analogue) and file based formats (including Sony F65/F35/F3, Red, Epic and Arri Alexa) and video DSLRs such as the Canon 5D Mk II..
I can provide a Super 16 Arri SRII Camera plus full Camera and Lighting crew.
I own a Sony NEX-FS100 S35 HD Camera plus 35mm lenses, Mattebox, Follow Focus etc, a Sony HVR-V1E HDV Camcorder which, as well as recording HDV internally, can record full HD (including uncompressed and all forms of Proress) when linked to an external recorder and a Sony DSR PD 170p DVCAM Camcorder.
As an Operator I have experience of using both fluid and geared Heads (including O'Conner, Ronford and Arri). I have worked off of dollies, jibs, Snake Arms etc and have experience of remote heads, both on jibs and cranes, and Motion Control (soft wheel rigs). I have also worked off the back of tracking vehicles and am Steadicam trained.

If you are shooting HDV, I can provide a second camera (in addition to my own), plus Operator. I can provide full Camera Crew who are trained to use both film(both 16mm and 35mm), tape (including Digibeta and HD) and 4K digital (Red Camera/ Arri Alexa).
I have a long association with a gaffer who freelances for Panalux, an association which has, in the past, resulted in me being able to get lighting equipment at very reasonable rates.
