About Us

Who is Indie Cinema Gear?

Indie Cinema Gear is an equipment rental company owned and operated by Gilded Cinema. Located in Hawthorne, CA and nestled between Space X and LAX, we serve the greater Los Angeles area.

We ourselves are independent filmmakers, and we strive to provide the best rental experience for other independent projects. From multi-million dollar features to ultra low budget music videos - Indie Cinema Gear has you covered. 

We have partnered with industry professionals who share our universal perspective on the rise of independent cinema to compile what we believe to be the ultimate equipment packages to fulfill the needs and wants of Cinematographers, Directors, and Producers. 

PLEASE NOTE: We are working filmmakers and our location houses a video/photography studio. Please make an appointment before dropping by to ensure that you do not disrupt a shoot or find that we are not open to the public.

Join the community to stay up to date about upcoming discounts and promotions.
