Encore and Level 3 Post, (both Deluxe Creative Services companies), have entered into strategic business alliance with two major players in the production equipment rental business – Clairmont Camera and William F. White International. Under the deal, television producers will be able to get competitive package deals on postproduction services when renting camera equipment as well as lighting, grip and camera support gear.
“Encore is a leading global brand for TV post and visual effects,” said Encore and Level 3’s executive VP Bill Romeo, “and we’re very happy to be in a position to join with other major players in the production equipment arena to offer this benefit to our clients. Clients have been seeking a one-stop shop for all their needs, from production through post, and we are confident that this meets their needs.”
“We are very pleased to join forces with Encore, Level 3 and White in order to provide an unparalleled level of total service to the production community,” said Denny Clairmont, president/CEO Clairmont Camera. “Production executives and managers who take advantage of this offering can rest assured that a highly skilled and experienced team of technicians and artisans is working together to insure that each project will progress smoothly from image acquisition through final delivery.”
“This alliance will facilitate new growth for all involved, while providing clients with a cost-effective solution to their needs,” added Garin Josey, vice president, assistant chief operating officer and general manager of William F. White International.
Clairmont Camera will host two gala parties to celebrate the companies’ new offering at its Vancouver facility on Jan. 16 and in North Hollywood Jan. 23.
