FilmspbTV will gladly help you to find the required equipment for the realization of your project in Russia. Equipment hire in Saint Petersburg and Moscow is one of the production services our company provides for foreign film crews.

We provide rental services throughout Russia. The main equipment warehouses are situated in Moscow and St Petersburg. In both cities we work with several reliable rental companies to propose the best relation of price and quality.

If it’s the first time we work with your company and we don’t have a signed production contract – for renting any kind of equipment in these two cities you have two options:

You take the equipment accompanied by a camera or lights assistant from the rental. Or you can leave a cash deposit that equals to the cost of the equipment you rent.

Equipment hire in Irkutsk, Vladivostok, Yakutia, Sochi, Kazan or any other region of Russia is possible. Sadly the rentals at these cities have a very limited choice, so most probably the equipment will be flying from Moscow or St Petersburg. The equipment has to be accompanied or by a fixer from our production company or by an assistant from the rental. We will pack the equipment as carefully as possible and will make an estimate of the insurance for the transportation of the equipment.

Travel days are billed as 0.5 of a production day.

Lights vans, Grip trucks, Camera vans charge have their fees based on a 10 hours long working day. If the filming takes place outside the city a fee will be added to the transportation cost, depending on the distance from the city limits.
