Production Company Olaus Roe decided to find local camera and lighting equipment and expertise in Tokyo in order to reduce their carbon footprint.

“We wanted to save money and also the hassle of an ATA Carnet, excess baggage and carrying boxes of kit through airports. Sanwa Cine Equipment Rental have offices in Tokyo, Osaka & Kyoto and provided a dedicated English speaking contact to set up the hire requirements by email. They delivered the equipment to our hotel and it was all as expected, well looked after, and we had time to check it all over.”
