We are thrilled to share that The Camera House and Division Camera successfully merged to form The Camera Division. As of May 1, we officially launched our combined effort to be the best full service cinema rental house in Southern California. We look forward to continuing to provide top notch service to our loyal customers.
Doors are now open to a repurposed warehouse located on Fulton Ave in North Hollywood. The Camera Division aims to be the filmmaker's second home and we carefully designed the space with you in mind. Boasting over 25,000 sq ft of space, exposed brick, and 16 ft ceilings, we offer a spacious prep floor and double the staff.
Moving over 21,000 units of equipment was quite a task. We look forward to providing the combined inventory, staff, and expertise that is now The Camera Division in one, much larger building, all while maintaining the friendly, personal attention our valued customers are accustomed to. -- Eric MacIver, President and Co-Founder

In the first of many upcoming projects designed to enhance the tools of creative filmmakers, The Camera Division released exclusive custom-developed Leica Summicron-C Classics (Classic-Crons), complete with matched glass and modern machining that provide gorgeous color flares and warmth that soften and enhance digital images. The Classic-Crons went out on their first job on May 23 with DP Nicola Marsh!

Our first priority at The Camera Division is to offer an unbeatable customer experience. Immaculate equipment and service is a given; but enjoy a Netflix Original, fresh ground coffee by-the-cup, soft drinks, snacks and other grab-and-go favorites at our recently updated client cafe. We look forward to continuing to upgrade our client service offerings throughout the next year.
Emergence was founded in 2016 by a collective of companies keen to support diversity in Hollywood. The initiative has sponsored two short films, two documentaries, a TEDX event, and other projects from underrepresented voices in Hollywood. This year, Emergence is offering women filmmakers an opportunity to produce a short film with resources provided by Emergence partners. The spring submission period closed in April with scripts from over 50 filmmakers. The winner will be announced at the beginning of summer and production of their project will begin shortly thereafter.
Emergence will start accepting scripts for the Summer deadline starting in July 2017 (deadline TBD).
