A Little History About Us…

Owned and run by Filmmakers for Filmmakers.

 

We don’t want to be the biggest, but we strive to be the best. Everyone here at Brainbox knows the pressures of being on set, and we work to make sure you are always getting the latest and greatest cameras, lenses, and accessories, at the best rental prices. Anywhere.

 

We started small, out of a bedroom, and while we’ve grown since then, we owe everything to our clients. That’s you guys. So thank you to the thousands of indies, producers, coordinators, directors, DP’s, AC’s, students, and dreamers who have come through our doors. We can’t wait to see who we can help next.

This is What We Do

It’s more than just renting cameras. We give you the tools and the know-how so you can walk onto your set confidently. That’s it.

 

We want your shoot to succeed, and to be as budget friendly as possible.

 

Okay there’s a little more to it than that. We will help you choose the right gear, offer advice,  assist  during your prep to make sure everything is working as intended, and more.

 

Oh, and we will also be the most affordable rental option around.

 

We love our gear, and maintain it lovingly, and you can relax knowing that gear you find here won’t be all worn out or beat up. Whether you prep and pick it up yourself, or we prep it and ship it out to your set, you will get the best support we can offer.

OUR CLIENTS

...and many other productions of all sizes
Our Team
Travis, the Boss Man

Travis, the Boss Man

Nobody is sure exactly what he does, but much like the eye of Sauron, his gaze inspires fear and awe in all those who fall under it. And he can ride a hoverboard while shooting with a 20lb camera rig. Backwards.
Jared, the Rental Agent

Jared, the Rental Agent

Slinging  phones with one hand, typing out quotes with the other, Jared is the multi-tasking core of the well-oiled Brainbox machine. If you’ve got questions on gear, orders to book, special arrangements to make, he’s the guy to get it done. Drinks 90% of the coffee consumed by the office.
Corey, the Overseer

Corey, the Overseer

He runs the show, cracks the whip, burns the midnight oil, and plenty of other euphemisms as well. He’ll make sure all equipment is where it’s supposed to be, research arcane technical questions on the minutiae of digital imaging, and never break a sweat.
Carter, the Tech Guru

Carter, the Tech Guru

He will prep your order with style. Discovering new ways to build rigs, test gear, and make clients satisfied is his mission. Also, not happy when stuff gets broken because he has to figure out how to get it fixed. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry, so don’t break anything!
Mila, the Autonomous Floor Prep Technician

Mila, the Autonomous Floor Prep Technician

Pretty lazy actually. Really lacks suction. Always getting stuck on the rug. Better watch yourself Mila, you’re on thin ice!
