Default Just Curious about how this works...

When someone directs a movie or tv show do they have to bring their own cameras and equipment? Or does the studio or production company supply that?

Just thought it was interesting.

Default Camera Question

The director only has to bring his megaphone and swagger stick.

The production company, (or studio), supplies the equipment. While the producer may arrange the budget and pays for the equipment, a production manager usually takes care of the day-to-day chores, (such as equipment rentals and set-ups); but, the director of photography may use the studio's cameras, his own, or rent gear from an outside rental company, (as would the sound recordist with sound equipment).

Unless you're doing a Indie production- then you make friends with people that own various pieces of equipment and go from there.
