WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Just wanted to express my gratitude to you guys and the whole Birns & Sawyer family for making this possible. Our film "Take Me To The River" will have its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. We couldn't have done it without your support and gear.

-Thomas Scott Stanton XoXo

Such a great experience every time I go to Birns and Sawyer…
Wow! these guys took care of me! answered all my questions, helped troubleshoot ideas, very thorough gear release, paperwork was a breeze. . . You get the picture. Everyone was just NICE! they weren’t snotty and stuck up like MOST rental houses are in LA.
These guys care about your business.
I highly recommend them, their prices are competitive to most of the rental houses I have used, and I think they might match price.

-Mr. B on Yelp.com

This shop is a filmmaker’s and cinematographer’s best friend!
There is a lot of film equipment out there, but the good people at Birns & Sawyer have USED all equipment and they will be able to tell you what’s best – their free advice is included with each product
Of note, whether you’re Michael Bay, or a student filmmaker, Birns & Sawyer treats everyone like a king – you can’t go wrong here!
