Film Production Equipment & Props
Film Production Equipment & Prop Hire.
Film and TV Production Equipment and themed props can be costly to purchase, especially if you don’t get your choice of prop right first time, or if you realise you don’t feel comfortable with a piece of hardware you have invested in. Prop Hire and Technology equipment Hire allows you to trial different technology and prop options without large capital outlay.
Also, the finite/project nature of film and Television production work means that prop hire, or production technology equipment hire is a good fit, as there is no requirement for capex spend on expensive equipment or props which will only be used for a relatively short period of time.
When a production coordinator is sourcing technology equipment such as apple hardware, tablets, phones, workstations and cameras, retailers only offer short-term return or exchange deals on electronics and it may take a bit longer to really figure out all the features of a piece of equipment and realise if the equipment “feels” right.
With regard to props, a production team may want to hire a few options to try out, until they find technology that works as a themed prop and matches the character, or backdrop styling and theme you’re seeking.
How we can help Creative Industries?
We have some insight into the production process, and regularly work with creative agencies, tv studio personnel, media production agencies, freelancers, and production management teams. We are used to delivering to studio production locations, and know the television studio access requirements well.
To help with your prop hire selection, we can (to some extent) send details of assets – images from different angles/dimensions etc to a production assistant, or a production manager if that will help in prop choice. You can rent different pieces of technology for an office scene, or warehouse scene, or mobile devices which are the right touch for your character. We love the experience of seeing our assets on screen as part of a television programme, and we our proud to play a tiny role in supporting the production of some excellent tv drama.
If choosing technology for your industry professionals to use who are working with the production, or working in post-production, you can rent out a particular piece of film production equipment, and use the equipment until you really know whether it is what you have been looking for and if the features available are sufficient for the type of work you need to undertake. If you love the asset, and can see yourself using it for the longer term, then you can talk to us about purchasing of the device.
If you are a producer, or work in creative media industry but have not used Hire Intelligence equipment or skills, then please do ask your peers, or call and we can highlight our relevant experience with leading production companies, broadcaster organisations and list studio locations we are familiar with.

Film Production Equipment & Props - The Zero Theorem
Film Production Equipment & Props - The Zero Theorem
When Terry Gilliam’s production company wanted equipment as the centre piece for a futuristic set on the movie The Zero Theorem, they turned to Hire Intelligence. A large number of LED screens were required which would be built into a cylindrical set design for one of the central scenes in the film. The screens needed to be very modern, with the facility to accept multiple inputs.
Hire Intelligence provided a rental of 20 of the latest 40inch Samsung LED screens along with another 18 screens of a various smaller sizes. These were then shipped to Bucharest where they were combined and built into a structure which brought Gilliam’s dreams to life. 50 iPads, also delivered to the Romanian capital, completed the hire.
