The expectations of life depend upon diligence; the mechanic that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.

Our Gear & Rental Information

Anticipate Media offers a fairly wide range of Independent Filmmaker's Gear. We specialize both in both 2K/Full 1080P HD and full 4K (DCI & UHD) production in house. We are fully equipped to both acquire and edit any production, with a modern edit bay featuring the latest in high-end 4K and 5K displays and similarly capable computer equipment.

  • Dry Hire (i.e., traditional equipment rental without a person), available under specialized circumstances, at competitive rates, and included with most of our productions.
  • Used for in-house productions: of course, any production coordinated by Anticipate Media comes with full access to our in-house kit at discounted rates.

An important note about UAS (drone) Filmmaking

DJI Phantom 4 Pro / Mavic Air

Anticipate Media is not an aerial filmmaking company. We do however hire licensed FAA-certified drone operators to gather necessary shots for our productions.

Please note: We do not, nor will we ever, rent our drones out.
