Hi guys,

We are looking for someone who is based there and willing to rent out their equipments to us.

We would need something like:

- 1 crane
- 1 light stand
- 1 kino type light
- 1 monopod 561bhdv
- 1 tripod

If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated :)

Susanto, what was the process of getting a work visa to shoot in the US? I wanted to bring in a crew from Malaysia, but our government required tax records, financial statements, bank records, background checks of every person, etc etc.. it was such a headache that I eventually gave up.

Re: Shooting in San Fransisco, need help!

I'd imagine the reason for renting gear from someone once they're here is because there is no work visa. That's what I would do if I had to work in the states. I recommend moving this to members only as you never know what could happen at customs, they could search google for "susanto widjaja san francisco" and this thread pops right up there.

This is just assuming that there's no work visa... Otherwise disregard.
