Local600 Director of Photography and Chapman University Almuni.
Having my background, normally I am pretty good at packing gear for your needs way better than rental houses. You can also tell me what you want to do and I can come up with solutions.
You need to schedule and communicate pick ups and returns. You cannot show up without notice since I am not a rental house w/ retail space.
Be on time! Drop off is before 12pm (Preferably around 8am - 10am) and pickup is after 2pm, unless otherwise agreed by both parties. Late returns might be subject to a late fee. You are more than welcome to return in the evenings as well.
Please note that pick-up and drop-off days are not your production days.
Sometimes if I'm working, the pick up/ drop off happens to be on my set. Otherwise it will be my place in Burbank. I will not deliver the gear to you unless its specifically negotiated.
Fantastic rental experience. I had a rental from another vendor that was cancelled last minute due to double booking, and needed to find a replacement last minute early AM before the shoot. Prototype Collective came to the rescue! Great communication and flexible pickup/dropoff scheduling based around our shoot. Really saved the day, thanks again!
