Here's some background information on our company:
We began renting production equipment in 1981, starting with a single
O'Conner 50 tripod. Inventory, as it is want to do, has grown considerably. Major motion pictures are out of our league but we do
service smaller features, commercials and many other projects. We were the first in the state to offer Kinoflo lights, Chimera softbanks, Mole beam projectors, Aaton XTR cameras and many other items.
Harris-Chewning, Inc. is located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Chapel Hill is home to the University of North Carolina and part of
the "triangle" of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. Also part of this
burgeoning region are Cary and the Research Triangle Park. The RTP is
renowned as one of the most prestigious corporate and educational
research communities in the world. Chapel Hill is in easy driving
distance to the "Triad" (Greensboro, High Point, Winston-Salem) in the
west and, to the east, Rocky Mount and Wilson. We're just a short
distance from the Virginia state line.
Both of the primaries, Suzanne Harris and Alton Chewning, have been a
part of the North Carolina production scene since 1978. Alton works
as a director of photography for features, commercials and
documentaries. Suzanne is H-C's rental manager, but worked a number
of years in production as a location sound recordist. The business
has grown up in the community so we know the crew, contacts and
resources to help further your production.
