MRMOCO Rentals, the rental arm of MRMC (Mark Robert’s Motion Control), announces a new collaboration with northern camera rental house No Drama. A natural evolution of the long-standing relationship between the two companies, this new enterprise will enable MRMC and No Drama to increase their camera technology offering and enhance the services they provide to production companies across the North of England and Scotland.
Located at No Drama’s brand new premises, based at Media City, Salford, this exciting new venture will place MRMC’s world-leading robotic camera control rigs right at the centre of one of the most important and creative media hubs in Europe. Production companies will be able to access all of MRMC’s resources and take full advantage of their motion control and VFX expertise and services, including pre-viz, tech-viz, and workflow pipeline.
Together with No Drama’s inventory of cutting-edge camera, grip, video equipment and the largest selection of vintage, modern, anamorphic, spherical and full-frame lenses outside of London, this collaboration aims to deliver a one-stop-shop for all production requirements.
MRMC’s Milo, Bolt X and Bolt robotic camera rigs are just some of the new tools available to production companies in the North of England.
Malcolm Wooldridge, technical director at MRMC, commented: "We are really excited about this collaboration. The No Drama team have made a dynamic impact on the creative talent in Glasgow and Manchester. By working together we are able to offer an integrated service of products, expertise and support. Creativity flows through the veins of Manchester’s film and production scene and we are thrilled to be a part of that."
James Jones, head of operations, No Drama, added: "No Drama was founded just under a decade ago with the aim to offer production companies in the north of England the same exceptional level of service and equipment inventory they’d come to expect from the very best rental houses in London. As world leaders in camera robotics and automation, MRMOCO has inspired us with their continuous innovation and technical excellence and there’s a real affinity between both of our teams in the strive to ensure our customers achieve the very best on-screen through our ongoing research, development and technical innovation behind the scenes. We are extremely proud to be part of this new collaboration and the incredible tools it now brings to the doorsteps of creative talent in the north of the UK."
