  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 40″ Product Photo Tent

    This 40″ white photo tent is the answer to your product photography prayers.  We use it for photos like this, without a distracting background.  The white of the tent allows for even lighting and eliminates distracting reflections when shooting shiny objects.  This tent works great with both continuous and strobe lighting.

    The tent includes four different color backdrops so you can pick the best match for your application.

  4. Green Screen Backdrop and Stands


    backdrop

    Use our 10×16 green/white/black backdrop rental as your studio-in-a-bag.  Great for full-body and group shots, for both video and photography.  This makes it easy to get the “infinite white” or “infinite black” look with appropriate lighting, and makes for easy keying for video work.

    The advantages of fabric backdrops are portability and affordability. If you need a perfectly smooth surface, we suggest using seamless paper instead. We carry a few different colors of 107″ seamless paper for purchase.

    Included are two 8′ stands and a 12′ cross brace.  We suggest using sandbags for safety.  If you have rigging, you can mount this cleanly with mafer clamps with threaded baby pins and wingnuts.  Our rate includes one of your choice of backdrop.  Add additional colors starting at $5/day.
