Formerly The Washington Source for Lighting, our Washington, D.C. location became Red Star Rentals DC in 2016.  Building on a more than 30-year legacy supporting film and video productions, Red Star DC added specialists from a DC camera rental company, Capital Camera. Today, Red Star DC is equally capable of supporting both camera and lighting and grip departments with a full range of modern equipment. 


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). We offer easy pickup at our DC location, as well as deliveries for productions shooting in Washington D.C., Arlington, Annapolis, and the greater DMV.


Our team can help you build a lighting and grip rental package, or prep your cameras and lenses for film, television, commercials, or live broadcast. Red Star DC is qualified vendor for both the Virginia and Maryland film tax incentives. Whether you’re renting just one camera or multiple 10-ton grip and lighting trucks, we’re excited to help make your next production great.
