My goal is to make sure you can create your film (or capture a wedding or interview or documentary).
If I don’t have the equipment you need at the price you can afford, message me and I’ll see what I can do. 100% of the equipment I own was bought because a creative artists asked for it. I have over $100,000 more in equipment that is not listed here, but just message me about what you need and I will be happy to add it if I have it. I sometimes buy as much as $2000-$3000 a week in near gear because local artists, filmmakers and groups need it and can’t get it at the price they can afford.
I am always happy to deliver equipment to your location (and pick it up) for a very reasonable price — even free if you’re renting enough! Not always the case, but I will always try. I also have 10 different PAs who work for me at various hours and schedules who can sometimes deliver gear for $0-$30 depending on a variety of factors. I don’t keep a penny of delivery fees.
Unlike the big rental houses, I keep extended hours from very early mornings to very late nights, including weekends and holidays. I have been known to even handle gear last minute at 2am, but that’s not always possible.
Please note that I am located in Rosemont near O'hare airport. If you take public transportation, I will always be happy to meet you at the Rosemont Blue Line free of charge for pick-ups or drop-offs! You can also come directly to me if you have a vehicle or take an Uber.
If you need to rent equipment that will cost you over $500, PM me for how you MIGHT be able to get a 50% discount by getting it all from me through ShareGrid, assuming I own it.
I am also the Executive Producer and founder of iNDiDB Studios — if you need a soundstage or studio space for very little, inquire.
If it matters, I’m a POC, respond to he/him/his, and have worked successfully with everyone I have done business with because film should be color blind, ability blind, gender blind and open to all opinions and attitudes as long as they’re peaceful ones.
Absolutely awesome Sharegrid experience! Contactless pickup and drop off, which was all done through a cleverly rigged up iPad with Facetime. Adam was very accommodating throughout the whole process, would most definitely rent again!
