Alan Degen, Partner
In 1973 Alan and two friends flew to Surinam and walked into the rain forest with a wind up Bolex 16mm film camera, old telephone pole climbing gear and the intention of being the first ever to film the giant Harpy Eagle in its nest. After more than 17 months in the jungle the exclusive footage was sold to “Survival Anglia” and a life-long passion for moving pictures was born. From that time Alan has been working as a cinematographer shooting documentaries, commercials and feature films. Alan’s client list includes: ABC, NBC, CBS, BBC, Survival Anglia, TBS, National Geographic, Warner Brothers and dozens of commercial producers. Alan has been providing clients with top quality camera rentals for more than 20 years.
