If you are like me, you use your camera kit not nearly as often as you would hope. Whether you are busy preparing your next shoot or editing the last, your camera is just sitting there and not bringing you any income. Occasionally, your camera will not suit a project and you’ll have to rent a different one.
“A company that checks on all members, and where the gear is properly insured... makes the concept of renting my gear out a real option.”
Philip Bloom, Filmmaker
MotionTribe is a peer-to-peer camera rental service founded by filmmakers with experience producing videos in 23 countries for clients such as Adidas and Vice. Freelancers and production share gear with the community and benefit from a fully-comprehensive insurance, member vetting, easy payment with no deposit and affordable prices. But the hidden value of MotionTribe lies in its community of over 1000 members in Europe.
“People come to make money or save money, then discover they can expand their network as each rental is an opportunity to meet a future collaborator.”
MotionTribe Co-founder, Haroun Souriji
Enak Cortebeeck is a director and MotionTribe member: “I only did it to have my equipment pay itself off a bit and I managed to use MotionTribe to buy extra equipment!” Despite the value of the items involved, Cortebeeck was reassured by MotionTribe's cautious enrolment procedure and comprehensive insurance. “The process breeds confidence: We've never turned a rental down.”
