ABOUT US

1/7

WHO ARE WE?

We're a Manchester based kit hire and crewing company located across the water from Media City UK

Lens Flare TV is owned and run by two working cameramen. We don't just sit behind a desk and hire out kit. We're out in the sun rain and snow all year round so we know what it takes to make a programme.

 

Our aim is facilitate and support productions wherever necessary.  We supply cameras, lenses, lighting and grip to broadcast and commercial productions. 

 

Got the kit but need the crew?  We’ve got that too.

WE ARE KIT HIRE

Our team have facilitated the kit, crew and workflow on some of the UK’s biggest shows and with a combined experience of over 40 years in the industry, we get it. No one wants to be let down by their kit. This means that all of the kit that we provide is exactly as we would want it: clean, reliable, and in great condition. 

 

We’re not just Manchester. We might be based here, but our kit has travelled the world. If you need your kit in another part of the country, or even somewhere further afield, we can get it there. 

 

Have any questions or just want to come in and have a play with something you like the look of? Get in touch.

WE ARE CREW

We don’t just ship kit out of the door, we work with some of the best and most talented crew in the North West. We can help you put together a cracking team whether you need just a single operator, or a full blown crew.

 

We can take the strain of the technical, so you can focus on the production.

Head over to our crew page to check out some of the mega talented folk we have the pleasure of working with.
