We aim to be a more moden production equipment house. Each month, we accept only a few new members into the club to take advantage of all the perks.
How does "Access" work?

Is there a time limit on how much I can access the gear?
Yes and no. Each plans comes with a fixed amount of time that more than covers the normal, 12-hour day that production usually adhere to. Although time is alloted with your plan, you can also extend your uses and more.
How long can I keep the gear?
Each plan comes with an alloted amount of access time. You can acess any package you'd like, anytime for either one 12 hour day per week or one 3 day shoot per month. If you need more time, simply conctact us and we will work with you to get the gear returned and checked back in with FGC.
How will I be billed each month?
At the time of setting up your account, the day that you sign up will be the automatic renewal date each month. We will bill the card you used to sign up with or whatever payment method you have on file.
What condition is the gear in?
We carry many type of brands and models. Most gear will either be brand new but some gear will be in a good "used" condition. Nothing will never ever not work. We also allow you to checkout the gear a day early to inspect everything before your shoot.
Can I select a new camera package each time I access or can I choose different packages?
Yes. All shoots are different and you may need different tools for different gigs. The beautfiul part about FGC is that you not only can access the gear but we constantly purchase the latest gear and as long as you're subscribed you can choose whatever camera, lighting, audio or lens package that is available within our warehouse.
Do I need to return everything at once?
Yes. At your desired pick up time, you will receive your prepared order. It's up to you to return the packages in the same way you received them. If you want to keep a sinlgle piece from any of the packages, contact support and as long as we have it in our warehouse, there shouldn't be a big problem with keeping the gear a little longer. But please note, if you do not contact support, a one time "late fee" may be applied to your account.
What happens if the gear I'm accessing is lost, damaged or stolen?
Before you can officailly request, we manually verify your production insurance to make sure these types of accidents are covered the best way possible. If you don't have current insurance, you will not be able to subscribe.

We require that all gear access request be sent out at least 48 hours in advance of your shoot date to ensure we have what you've requested.

Before any gear leaves the FGC warehouse we both verify it's condition internally and we will also allow you to check everything out before officailly leaving with the equipment.
