No matter your budget, Red Star Pictures offers the tools and services you need, when you need them.


Here at Red Star Pictures we maintain a large selection of production rental equipment (with a specialization in HMI lighting) at both our Madison, Wisconsin and Louisville, Kentucky locations as well as our satellite office in Washington D.C. However, it is important to us that our ability to provide the tools you need does not stop where our inventory list ends. We maintain working relationships with vendors and companies throughout the nation, ensuring that even if we do not have what you need, we have the resources available to find it for you.


Having worked on projects of all shapes and sizes our staff understands that whether it’s a student film, a local commercial, or the next Hollywood blockbuster, time and money are always in short supply. That’s why we’re happy to work with you to find a package that suits your needs, as well as your budget. Short notice? That’s okay too, we understand that timelines can be tight and whether you need something next week, or in the next few hours, we’re always willing to do what it takes to get the job done.


We understand that service is just as important as gear, and that’s why ours doesn’t stop the moment the gear leaves the shop. Our experienced full-time staff is always willing to go the extra mile, providing invaluable help and support for your project. From help finding crew to demonstrations and advice on gear we’re happy to be a resource for more than just the tools you need.


At Red Star Pictures our goal is simple, to work with each and every client to provide the top quality gear and service they need, at a price that meets their budget. That’s why every rental comes with the following:
• Quality gear, well maintained and tested before every rental to serve you reliably.
• 24 hour emergency support with every rental.
• No mileage fees for the first 150 miles.
• Low flat rate delivery fees
• The full support and advice of our experienced and knowledgeable full time staff to help keep your production running smoothly.
