Encore and Level 3 Post, both Deluxe Creative Services companies, are excited to announce a new strategic business alliance with two major players in the production equipment rental business. Starting now, television producers can choose to receive extremely competitive package deals when renting camera equipment from the venerable Clairmont Camera and lighting, grip and camera support from the highly-respected William F. White International in combination with post services from Encore or Level 3.

The new relationship reflects the commitment of the four companies to offer streamlined, budget-conscious services to producers and is in response to the changing needs of clients in the current landscape of TV production. "Encore is a leading global brand for TV post and visual effects," says Encore and Level 3's Executive VP Bill Romeo, "and we're very happy to be in a position to join with other major players in the production equipment arena to offer this benefit to our clients. Clients have been seeking a one-stop shop for all their needs, from production through post, and we are confident that this meets their needs."

"We are very pleased to join forces with Encore, Level 3 and Whites in order to provide an unparalleled level of total service to the production community," adds Denny Clairmont, President/CEO Clairmont Camera. "Production executives and managers who take advantage of this offering can rest assured that a highly skilled and experienced team of technicians and artisans is working together to insure that each project will progress smoothly from image acquisition through final delivery."

"This alliance will facilitate new growth for all involved, while providing clients with a cost-effective solution to their needs," concludes Garin Josey, Vice President, Assistant Chief Operating Officer and General Manager of William F. White International.

Clairmont Camera will host two gala parties to celebrate the companies' new offering at their Vancouver facility on January 16th and in North Hollywood January 23rd.
