Formerly The Washington Source for Lighting, our Washington, D.C. location became Red Star DC in 2016.  A more than 30-year fixture in the local lighting and grip market, Red Star DC added knowledgeable camera rental specialists from Capital Camera and expanded into a true one-stop shop. 

We offer a full range of camera, lighting, grip and production supply rentals to productions shooting in Washington D.C., Arlington, Annapolis, and the greater DMV. 

Conveniently located just off of Highway 50 and the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, it’s a short drive to dozens of DC monuments including The White House, The Capitol Building and The National Mall.

Our team can help you build a lighting and grip rental package or prep a camera package for film, television, commercials, or live broadcast.

Red Star is the mid-Atlantic leader in production equipment rental. Our nearby Alexandria and Baltimore locations can support productions working in the DC suburbs (all while avoiding DC traffic).

Red Star DC is qualified vendor for both the Virginia and Maryland film tax incentives. We have experience renting camera and lighting equipment to film, video, and television productions of all sizes.
