Here is an interesting read for those who are led to belive that 4k is just a buzzword in the world of digital cinematography:
If you are contemplaiting whether to shoot your next production on Epic or Alexa, we guess this article will present a lot of interesting arguments. It's quite ironic that the best and most thorough arguments we've ever seen on why 4k+ is important in acquisition, have been articulated by Arri - a few years before they made their 2k Alexa camera, and started to claim that 4k is a buzzword in the industry: It's not, only a mere excuse by a company that should know better.
Our Epic kits shoot 5k, and we work hard to offer the absolute best camera kit's available.
BTW: When ARRI finally delivers a real 4k kamera with on-board raw recording, we will add it to our inventory, no doubt!
Supporting innovation, technology and art - in a broader sense, is just as important for us as the film infrastructure services we offer. Supporting art-on-wires is an expression of this belief.
Art.on.Wires is an annual arts and science festival for young and innovative artists, researchers and creative professionals who work in the fields of new media art, information technology, and communication design. From the 30th of April to the 5th of May 2012, art-on-wires set up an artistic laboratory at Ingensteds next to Blå in Grünerløkka (Oslo) where artists turn into researchers and researchers make art. The festival has become an international meeting point for sharing experiences, exploring emerging forms of artistic expression, and reflecting on the chances and risks of tomorrow's technologies.
Art.on.Wires audience are media artists, designers, creative professionals, researchers, and engineers who share an interest in new multimedia technology, creative thinking and innovative ways of problem solving.

Finally our website is launched. Unfortunately only in English at this time, but a Norwegian version will follow.
At the time of launch we have made our catalog of production gear available, but more is coming. As a tease we can mention a fully equipped scenography, miniature and props workshop. More surprises will follow.
Take a look around our site, and we hope you will enjoy. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us. And by the way, as a general rule, we can manage to fix almost any gear you'll need within 5-7 days, if we don't already have it in our catalog.
