    er... I don't think there's anywhere in Myanmar. It's still the third world there. I was there earlier in the year and it's like stepping back in time 30 years.
    There are quite a few hire shops in Bangkok, Thailand.
    Cinerent, here in Kuala Lumpur has a couple of Epics. Unfortunately I'm shooting this weekend otherwise I would come out and help you with mine.

    Whatever happens, have fun. It's a beautiful country and the people are wonderful, when they're not killing each other.

    Hello Michael,

    I just got back from shooting a TVC in Myanmar last month.

    I took a Red Epic kit in with me.

    There is one Epic in Yangon, and it is privately owned. I did not see or use it - but I knew that it would maybe be an option if mine had trouble.

    I would suggest taking your equipment in. (and make sure your Visa documentation is perfect…) it's an interesting place, but very, very hard to work there.

    Thanks Ruff & Paul
    The Epic located in Rangoon will be our first choice, but we changed the dates and it's not available anymore…
    Will try to work with the local crew… I let you know… ;)

    I'm in Thailand at the moment finishing a commercial shoot.

    Hey Ben, this is Renan Ozturk. I'm a cinematographer working with an expedition team, and here in Myanmar. We just spent two months in the northern Kachin jungles where the rain broke my RED Dragon monitor. I arrived in Yangon last night, and am hoping somehow someway to contact the private owner of the one Epic in Yangon to see if I could rent the monitor for 1 week while I travel to Bagan and also film here in Yangon. Do you have his contact info? Thank you very much for your help. Best, Renan (www.camp4collective.com0

    I am am based out of Laos PDR and equipped with a Scarlet Dragon shooting kit. My kit is fairly basic with 3 CN-E lenses, a Cinema Glass 18-35mm and Canon EF Lenses to 300mm, a Trost slider and a DJI Ronin. I speak Thai and Lao fairly well.

    Next time any of you are in the area just email me at glenharveyjones@gmail.com.
