Crew Hire

DoP, lighting, camera and sound recording crew for 4k Snow White Panto TV advert in Bristol Hippodrome with Colour247 Sound crew on location for VW promo with GSL Media At Exeter Chiefs Rugby stadium with Cineon Productions as focus puller and jib and dolly grip

Maniac Films not only hire camera, lighting, grip and sound equipment for productions but we can also provide experienced operators to use the kit too. We can work with you and your clients on a complex production or can work independently on your behalf - saving you time and money. Give us a brief and we can discuss the equipment and the crew positions needed.

A big thanks to you guys yesterday for cracking on and getting everything set up. The shots look great and you’re both a pleasure to work with and get on well with the clients too.
- Colin, Colour247

We don't just work on our own video productions, we also offer crew hire for many positions including Director of Photography (DoP), camera operator, 1st Assistant Camera (1st AC/focus puller), 2nd Assistant camera, Jib grip, Dolly grip, lighting cameraman, sound recordist, boom operator, gimbal operator as well as editor, DiT and VFX crew too. We offer wet-hire of any of our rental kit - sometimes its cheaper to hire us with equipment then to just rent the gear.

Our crew have worked on TV adverts, feature films, corporate promo's, documentaries & sports films. We have worked in a range of locations from studios and theatres to windswept mountains - so why not give us a try on your next shoot?

It was amazing having Stu there to help (with the sound recording) - Ben, GSL Media

'Wet hire' can also save you money compared to hiring crew and equipment separately. The hire charge for some of our equipment is included in the crew hire day rate (certain items such as the jib cost extra and may require 2 or more crew members).

We use all of our hire equipment on our own productions so we are familiar with the kit. Familiarity means less mistakes and less time wasted setting up and getting to know the kit. If you want to learn on the job you can learn from us too - we are a friendly bunch!

We work locally in the South West UK but can travel across the country and have often found ourselves in Leeds, Cumbria, London or deep into the heart of Wales. We have worked on productions in Indonesia, Fiji & Australia too and are keen to travel as required. Contact us now to discuss your crew needs or browse some of our previous projects below. If you need a video filming and editing as a complete video production rather then equipment and crew hire, please see our video production services for more information.
