So sorry to hear about this Rohan,
I have informed our members.
How did you manage today?
Hopefully you were able to get some help from your local producers to assist with the job.

Regards

Thanks very much Rochelle,

Unfortunately the shoot was a no go - there was too much missing equipment and too little time to cobble together a usable kit. A great shame as some actors had been flown in for the day, location hired and catering all set up.

Parts of the stolen kit are being found in nearby suburbs - although not the camera or lenses yet.
Some of the stuff is complete and undamaged, a couple of other bits are wrecked - the wireless follow focus was thrown at a parked car as the bastards drove by, breaking a window and destroying the FF unit.

Several other cars in my street were also broken into at the same time as mine.
Looks like they have absolutely no idea what they have, just grabbed the cases and drove off and are now dumping it.

I'm not too sure what is worse - being ripped off by someone who knows what the gear is and wants to use it or being ripped off by morons that just want to destroy stuff.
