I'm a Columbia University film MFA student, focused on directing and cinematography. I love shooting narrative films with meaningful, engaging stories, and I'm always excited to meet new people with strong visions to work with.

Lomo 20-120mm T3.2 PL Mount Zoom

Lomo 35OPF18-1, 20-120mm lens in PL mount. Cleaned and serviced last year by a former Angénieux technician in Paris. The finest cinema zoom ever made by the Soviets. Features a convenient zoom range and extremely close focus: as little as 0.8m at 120mm. You can get a close-up of a human eye. Fitted with a modern follow focus gear. Comes with a lens support for 19mm studio setup. Additional accessories (rods, baseplate, etc.) available upon request for a small fee. If you want to use a matte box with this lens, you must have a 6x6 box with at least a 147mm lens diameter. The O'Connor O-Box can fit this lens, but its 5.65x4 filter size means you'll lose the 20-30mm zoom range (I have tested this). NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE WITH 15MM RODS. USE OF A LENS SUPPORT IS REQUIRED OR YOU RISK DAMAGING THE MOUNT. THE LENS WEIGHS OVER 13LBS. NOTE: This is an early copy of an 80s Soviet cinema zoom lens. It has significant vignetting when wide open, an unusual (although I think it's beautiful) bokeh, and depending on the sensor size of your camera, you risk not being entirely covered in the wide end (on Ursa Mini 4.6k PL, for example, full sensor coverage starts at 22mm). If you're interested but not sure that this is the lens for you, contact me and we can arrange for a test with your camera.

Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K PL + Zoom lens + Full Kit

Includes all of the necessary accessories for shooting. Lens, cards, batteries, viewfinder, and more. The camera is the original Ursa Mini (not the Pro, not the Pro G2), but still works great and, yes, it does shoot RAW. I've shot with this for commercials, docs, corporate interviews, short films, and even a micro-budget narrative feature. The lens is the real deal: a custom rehoused 28-70PL T3 based on an Angénieux design, with full standard cine gears and full manual control. The package also comes with the following goodies that make this camera fully ready to shoot: – OLED HD Ursa Mini Viewfinder – Blackmagic Video Assist (HD display, 5") with a magic arm for mounting on camera and an SD card for recording Prores dailies – Blackmagic OEM shoulder kit with plate, grip, and 15mm carbon fiber rods – VCT-14 baseplate for use with the shoulder mount on a tripod – 2x256GB Transcend CFast 2.0 cards (32 mins/card at 4:1 RAW) with a USB 3 card reader – 2x160Wh V-Mount batteries with additional D-Tap and USB output. 1 charger each, 2-3 hours of uptime per fully charged battery depending on configuration. – AC Power supply – Tilta FF-03 manual Follow focus – Plenty of backup cables and screws (you lose it, you buy it) I also can provide the following optional extras. If you'd like to use them, let me know as part of your request. Prices will follow the same discounts as the base price for multi-day rentals: +$10/day: Tilta 19mm studio dovetail baseplate combo with 19mm studio rods +$10/day: Firecrest IRND 3/6/9 6x6 filter series. Note: these filters *do not* come with a mattebox (unfortunate and long story involving a previous renter :( ) +$15/day: Nucleus-M wireless FF and zoom control kit, 2 motors, 15mm and 19mm rods compatible +$50/day: Replace the 28-70 T3 lens with a Lomo 20-120 T3.2, a massive yet beautiful Soviet cinema zoom from 1986. Its macro functionality lets you go from a wide angle at 20mm to frame a single human eyeball with tack-sharp focus and incredible bokeh in 4k. The 19mm studio kit is included with the lens for free. The lens weighs 12lbs by itself, so it is strongly not recommended for handheld work. Finally, note that I *do not have* a tripod! I find that every setup and shoot demands different camera support, so you'll have to check elsewhere for now. I find that two batteries and two cards is typically sufficient for a normal shooting day. But if you're shooting a lot or if you don't have easy access to power and DIT, I'd recommend picking up a couple of extra cards and batteries along with whatever tripod you end up getting. If you have any questions or interest about the package or my experience with it, please reach out!
