    10x10A pop up tent (a.k.a. canopy, ez-up, shelter, popup, or sunshade) keeps everyone on your team happy and out of the elements.  It’s a great a base of operations on an outdoor film or video shoot, and perfect for an outdoor exhibitor space as well.  This pop up is 10’x10′ with straight legs. It comes in a rolling travel bag, and can be set up easily by just one person.

    We suggest securing it with ropes, sandbags, or stakes if you’re using it outside.

  4. Phototek Sunbuster Uncle Sam Umbrella


    phototek-sunbuster

     

    The Phototek Sunbuster SB-84 is an 84″ umbrella designed to work as a diffusion,solid, or reflector. It sets up in seconds, and mounts easily on a C stand or can be held by hand. It’s an excellent option to replace bulky butterflies and overheads, especially when you have a minimal crew. Use the silk to soften direct sunlight, or use the black/silver for throwing shade or bouncing strobes.

    The center pole tilts to maximize the shaded area, and a boom-style tilting bracket lets you position it anywhere.

    A heavy-duty stand and multiple sandbags are required for outdoor use.

  6. Bubble Machine


    bubbles

    Our bubble machines are incredibly popular at birthday parties, and also rent for parade floats, weddings, music videos, and special events throughout the Milwaukee area. This is a professional grade bubble machine with high output, creating many thousands of bubbles per minute.

    For best results, bubble machines should be used outdoors. Indoor use should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Running the bubble machine for an extended time can cause any area to become slippery. The renter is responsible for appropriate and safe use.

    You’ll also need fluid (bubble juice).  You can make your own with dish soap, or use our commercial bubble fluid for significantly more bubbles that last a lot longer. We can send you with a gallon for $25. That’s usually enough for up to an hour, depending on conditions.

    Rental Prices

    $34 for 1 day
    $68 for up to 3 days
    $102 for up to 7 days
    Call or email for availability.

    Suggested accessories:
    Extension cable
    Extra bubble fluid


  7. Medium Smoke Machine


    smoke machine

    Our 800-watt smoke machine (also called fog machine or fogger) is rated for up to 8000 cu ft of fog per minute, great for medium-sized stages, haunted houses, or as a general mist in larger spaces. We include a remote, and an automatic timer remote upgrade is available.

    This fog machine, like most others, is not silent.  You’ll get cloudy fog with a hint of stringiness, and in most conditions the fog will be denser near the floor.  If you want a mist/haze effect, we suggest pairing this with a fan, or upgrading to a hazer with haze fluid.  The smoke machine can rest on the floor, or be mounted to a pipe or stand with a clamp.

    The smoke machine is designed to work in bursts.  The heating element needs 3-5 minutes to warm up after long periods of continuous use.

    Fog machines are popular with events, churches, DJs, haunted houses, and parties.  A little bit of atmosphere can make a small dance/DJ light kit look much bigger.

    You’ll also need fluid (fog juice).  We can send you with a pint for $14, more than enough for hours and hours of fogging.

    $48 for up to 3 days

  9. Chromakey Green Apple Box Set


    greenscreen-chroma-apple-boxlIf you’re shooting on a greenscreen, there’s nothing quite as useful as a chromakey greenscreen-ready apple box family.  We custom painted these apple boxes for easy visual effects and compositing.  Your rental gets you a full green apple, half green apple, quarter green apple, and a green pancake.
