Why Use KitStudio?

Save Money

Save up to 50% when compared to traditional rental houses. Many kit owners on Kitstudio will not demand the same high prices that you’d expect to find at rental houses. Your kit budget can stretch a lot further on KitStudio and you may excited to see what kit is within reach. Why pay more if you don’t have to?

Save Time

We all know how stressful shoots can be. Schedules are often too ambitious, leaving crew incredibly time poor. Sourcing kit locally can save a huge amount of time and help reduce stress levels, leaving you free to concentrate on your craft with maximum creativity.

Find Awesome Kit

With thousands of pieces of professional kit to choose from, you can source everything you need for your next shoot or just pickup that one specialist item you’re missing. Whether it’s cameras, lighting, audio kit, grip or something incredibly obscure that you need for one particular shot, you may be pleasantly surprised at what’s available on KitStudio.

Rent with Confidence

At KitStudio it is one of our primary goals to build as much confidence, safety and trust as possible across every element of the platform. As such, we have built an industry leading indicator that we call the Trust Score. As a KitStudio member you have a Trust Score associated with your profile, and it is visible for all other members to see.

Grow Your Network

KitStudio is built by filmmakers, for filmmakers. We know how important it can be to meet people in the industry, learn, chat, network and, who knows, potentially collaborate. Whilst allowing our members to gain access to kit is certainly at the forefront of our platform, it is also our mission to help in as many other ways as possible.

Protect the Planet

Our planet needs us now more than ever and at KitStudio we are excited to be doing our bit. Did you know that 80% of kit sits idle most of the time. There are huge wastage and inefficiencies in supply vs usage. Help reduce wasteful manufacturing by becoming a member of the sharing economy here at KitStudio.
