Equipment & Other Supplies
HOIST maintains a substantial inventory of studio production equipment. Most of these tools may be used freely on-site and are included in the cost of the studio itself. Some consumable supplies are sold separately, and prices for these items are shown below.
This page is an overview of our inventory, but it's not a complete list. Please contact us for more detailed information. We do not offer cameras or lighting, but links to local rental houses are listed in our resources section.
