    I would say probably not, or if there are, you'd never find the individuals through REDUSER or advertised anywhere.

    For the most part most productions that shoot digital shoot on Alexa, as I've seen a few on my trip there a year and a half ago. Never saw an Epic and didn't see a RED One either.

    If you've got the clearance to shoot in Iran, I'd definitely bring an Epic into the country, if you have to. Grip and Lighting gear is somewhat rudimentary in the country, but I haven't seen the entire extent of what rental houses have.

    Good luck on your search.

    i know lots of red epics in iran and also very good and experienced gaffer with light equipment on grip they are awesome without anything they can make miracles cant think about if they had real equipments in iran,but you should tell the guys what you gonna shoot first.goverment is too harsh about cinema boy and girl cant hug etc.
    other than that everything is so damn cheap in iran full
    package like 250-300$ master primes almost free to rent grip and light guys works for 300-500$ monthly
