Kit Hire

ScreenHI is committed to facilitating skills development and we realise that having access to good quality kit makes all the difference to you.  We are willing to hire out our kit to a Highlands and Islands practitioner in one of two ways:

  1. A ScreenHI Production.  No hire costs, we cover the camera kit insurance, provide mentoring, editing assistance, editorial guidance and in return you provide agreed deliverables which include programme paperwork, blogs, publicity photos, DVDs, inclusion of ScreenHI logo and credits.  Download the full list of deliverables.
  2. Non-ScreenHI Production.  Daily hire cost is £50 per day, £100 refundable deposit and we have nothing to do with your film.  You must organise insurance for the camera and provide evidence of such before kit will be released.

ScreenHI has a Sony HDV Z7 camera kit, which includes tripod, 2 x radio mics, directional microphone, wide conversion lens and tape or memory card recording capabilities.
