We’re thrilled to announce that we’re officially launched in Los Angeles!
Filmmakers, photographers, and creatives in LA can now save money on camera rentals; safely make money renting out their own gear; and find support & collaboration within KitSplit’s national community of creatives.
Los Angeles is a natural home for KitSplit—after all, it’s the source of many of the world’s classic films and the origins of the industry. But the LA creative world is so much more than Hollywood. LA to us includes everyone from the Acadamy and Emmy award -winners, to the thousands of film students, YouTubers and aspiring indies making work across the city and along the beach.
So it’s no surprise that since our launch in NYC over 2 years ago, we’ve had thousands of creators join in LA, listing thousands of cameras, lenses, lights, and support. Today, we’re thrilled to build on this strong foundation by inviting the broader LA creative community to join KitSplit’s tens of thousands of members, and rent our hundreds of millions of dollars worth of gear.
We make it easier and more enjoyable for LA creators to rent gear by providing one-click insurance, on-demand delivery; and comprehensive customer service. We’re also super focused on bringing the community together IRL by throwing monthly events with LA partner organizations, featuring inspiring KitSplit members.
While anyone in the US can browse and use KitSplit for free, an official city launch like today’s LA launch signifies that a particular city has been populated with hundreds of gear owners ready for booking; that we’ll be partnering with organizations and schools in the area to support local creators; and that we’ll be hosting regular community events in the city.
Free Concierge Service to Celebrate Our LA Launch
To celebrate our launch and honor the LA community, we are offering free concierge service site-wide for a limited time.
When you have a complex or urgent rental you can simply send your gear request to KitSplit, and our team of Gear Experts will find you the best gear at the best prices and arrange all of the logistics so they show up on set right when and where you need it. Forget calling up rental house after rental house or scrambling with last minute facebook messages. We’ll handle the gear logistics: you focus on making amazing work!
Please tell your friends: we look forward to building an even stronger and more vibrant community with you, and we can’t wait to see what projects LA KitStplitters make. And if you’re going to be in town November 3rd, you’re invited to come toast to our launch with us at El Cid in Silver Lake—drinks and snacks on us!
Thanks to all of the LA beta members who have patiently waited for this day, and for the partners who have helped welcome us to LA and spread the word. We can’t wait to build brilliant projects and a vibrant community with you!
