For the past two years Eric Arndt has been part of Fletcher Camera & Lenses’ Chicago and is now transitioning to Fletcher’s Michigan offices to lead the marketing efforts for that operation.
“Continuing to build our Detroit operation (opened in 2008) is a top priority for us,” says Zoe Borys, General Manager of Fletcher Camera & Lenses’ rental division. “Although the Michigan film incentive is currently being reviewed, we are committed to growing and supporting the day-to-day commercial and corporate business in Detroit. It’s our goal to invest long-term in this market, providing the latest equipment, technology and educational resources to the area.”
Says Arndt, “Fletcher Camera & Lenses is like family to me, and I’m proud to work with a company whose name is so well-known and respected in our industry. They’ve given me a great opportunity to nurture the active film and commercial community in Michigan – a state that I think has a very bright future in this space.”
Ardnt joins Fletcher Detroit's long-time film rental house veteran, Steven Oatley and part-timer Devin Laster in running the Michigan office. Recent inventory additions include Arri ALEXA and Sony F3 cameras with RED Epics coming soon; RedRock Micro DSLR rigs; and additional Angenieux Optimo Zoom lenses. "This office is committed to continue Fletcher's national reputation of hosting regular educational events for the crew as well as producers," explains Arndt.
