KitMapper Gives Back: Aiding Survival for Creatives in a Competitive World

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, KitMapper has announced this December it will be reducing Lister fees over the winter period from 17.5% to 14% the lowest it has ever been. Listers will be able to earn money to spend on gifts for their loved ones and Renters will have access to special promotional offers on all products hired through KitMapper.

The online peer-to-peer rental site for creatives will also continue to offer The KitMapper Guarantee, a vital safety net which covers users should kit be subject to an incident. This will not only make KitMapper the cheapest way for users to get their hands on photography and AV kit, but now Listers will have the opportunity to make over £100s a week. Renters looking to hire professional photographic and AV kit for shows, exhibitions, events and independent projects will be able to get it through KitMapper for 30% to 50% less compared to traditional rental houses.

We have over 2 million people working in the UK creative industries and funding to the arts constantly under threat, small, personal projects struggle to take notice. KitMapper believes that the creative enterprise should never be hindered by expense or availability. Founder Dave Charlesworth and the team have developed KitMapper to be the UKs first equipment rental network dedicated to creatives by creatives.

Living in London, I am seeing that opportunity pool shrinking, studio costs are soaring, venues are disappearing and galleries are closing. On top of that, the cost of living grows month by month, so there is a natural drive to find new economic models so that making amazing things continues to be sustainable. - KitMapper Founder, Dave Charlesworth.

Using KitMapper couldnt be easier. Popular pieces of kit for the holiday season:

¢ Arri Alexa, Sony A7s, Canon 5D and C300 cameras, ideal for anyone looking for high-quality photos and video.

¢ Genelec 8020cs, Technics 1210 turntables and NuMark MixPro II midi, perfect for running holiday parties.

¢ Arri, Bowens, Dedolight and Kino Flo flash studio lights and fresnel sets, excellent for lighting holiday photos.

How it works:

If you're lending, create a profile account, add some photos with product information and list away for free. If youre renting sign up for free and start browsing for kit. Both parties are covered by the KitMapper Guarantee, a legal rental agreement, status tracking, ID verification courtesy of Experian and trust ratings set by our own community.

When Sony unveiled the Venice, its first full-frame cinema camera system, Cinematographer Antonio Morais couldn’t wait to get his hands on it.
