Formerly Cinequipt, Red Star Minneapolis has a 50-year legacy as the Twin Cities’ premiere camera rental, lighting and grip rental and production supply partner.

We rent lighting from every major manufacturer, with particularly deep inventory in Arri, Aputure, Astera, and Creamsource. We also rent grip equipment, from 10-ton trucks to individual C-stands, flags, and every on-set essential. 

Red Star provides camera rental Minneapolis has counted on for more than 50 years. We stock more than 100 cameras, and offer dedicated camera prep benches. From cinema cameras like the Arri Alexa 35 to mirrorless cameras like the Sony A7s III, and an unmatched selection of lens rentals, Red Star can help you build the kit you need.

Easily accessible from Interstate 94 and Minnesota Highway 100, we’re just 8 minutes north of downtown Minneapolis, 20 minutes from the Minneapolis-Saint Paul (MSP) International Airport, and an easy drive to to anywhere in the Twin Cities. Making things even more convenient, we share space with the Cinequipt Studios, with studio spaces for productions of all sizes.

Red Star Rentals Minneapolis is a qualified vendor for both the Minnesota and Iron Range Regional film tax incentive programs, and proudly support video and film shoots in cities throughout the state and surrounding area, including Rochester, St. Cloud, Duluth and across the border in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Red Star Minneapolis also supports our Red Star Northwoods office, which is open by appointment only.
