After ten years, MKE Production Rental has closed our doors. Thanks for all the great times, Milwaukee!

MKE Production Rental was founded by director of photography Jon Kline in 2013, to meet the needs of small and medium-budget video productions in Milwaukee.  In 2014, we expanded into renting stage and event equipment, including stage lights, live sound, projectors, and screens. We have a growing team of employees and are always looking for our next team member.

As video and film production rental specialists, we provide the equipment and knowledge to get great video, whether your project is destined for TV, the internet, film festivals, or you’re just sharing it with friends. We rent more than a dozen different cameras and 100 lenses, to give you the perfect options for any project. We service film productions from our Milwaukee office, and frequently deliver to video productions in Chicago, Madison, and Green Bay.

Professional tools are now cheaper and smaller than ever before, and shooters of all levels are creating incredible work.  But how do you know which equipment you need for your video? What if you don’t shoot often enough to purchase gear? Or what if you’re new to photography or video and just want to experiment? We’re here to help with the equipment, the advice, and the training to bring your dreams to life.  Our customers are professionals, students, and weekend filmmakers from around the Midwest and around the world.

Our event and audiovisual rental services are targeted for corporate events, weddings, and entertainers on any budget. We can provide complete lighting, sound and projections for any event, or just rent you the pieces you need to set it up yourself. We’ve been involved with event productions in Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, Brookfield, Waukesha, Mequon, and the surrounding communities, and our list of clients continues to grow.

We also offer exhibitor services for companies and organizations hosting guests at the Wisconsin Center, Fiserv Forum, and other event spaces in Milwaukee

We believe being a partner to Milwaukee’s creative community means supporting organizations that share our values. We partner with nonprofits like UW-Milwaukee, CreativeMornings Milwaukee, and the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network. We also sponsor film festivals and events, including the Beloit International Film Festival, the Milwaukee Short Film Festival, and the 48 Hour Film Project in Milwaukee and Madison. If your nonprofit organization’s message would benefit from partnering with us, please reach out.

We aren’t the biggest rental company in Milwaukee, but we strive to be the most helpful.  We started out helping our friends make better videos.  Today, that’s still what we do best.
