Video Equipment Rentals Buys Fletcher Film and Digital Camera Division
Fletcher's Sports Division Remains Independent
Video Equipment Rentals (VER) is buying Fletcher's film and digital camera rental business, the company said. The division will maintain a separate identity from its parent company, VER said, including a different phone number, website, floor space and staff.
It will operate out of Fletcher's existing locations in Chicago and New Orleans, where it expanded last year. The purchase does not include Fletcher Chicago's sports division, which will operate out of its location downtown until a pending relocation to the suburbs in 2014.
"We can now more fully serve the DP's and AC's artistic and technical needs alongside the financial and business needs of producers," said Tom Fletcher in a prepared statement. "My entire staff is excited to be joining forces with VER to bring our thoughtful customer service and extensive film and digital experience to a much wider range of productions."
"We couldn't be more excited to have Fletcher Camera advance VER's Cinema Division's commitment to service the cinematographer," said VER co-owner VInce Dundee in a statement.
