  Gibson Group

Crew – I have hired crew from Rocket Rentals for work on a number of different TV Productions in the past two years. I have always found them to be extremely hard-working, reliable, professional and great to work with in a team environment. They are quick-thinking, take direction well, and show flexibility in working with different camera formats and styles of programmes. Their compact doco-style kits allow for quick lighting set ups and good mobility when shooting on location. The rocket crews have a wealth of experience across documentary and factual mediums and have shot programmes all over New Zealand. Above all, they have a fearless and positive approach to helping achieve the best possible results for whatever project they are working on. I recommend the Rocket crews for a variety of film shoots and would not hesitate to hire them again in the future.

Rental – It is great to know we can call on Rocket Rentals when we have an urgent last minute requirement. Last month our camera broke while the crew were overseas so I called to see if Rocket could help and Matthew had a camera ready to go straight away. It is always a pleasure to deal with the team whether it is the Auckland or Wellington branch.
Thank you so much for your support over the last six years!

Inside Natures Giants: The Giant Squid
Crew – I’ve just finished reviewing rushes and wanted to let you know they look (and sound!) sensational. Everything about the shoot – the design of the table, the lighting, the look, the camera work, the jib operating was brilliant. So thanks guys. On top of everything else it was a pleasure working with you. You were so totally chilled – all the more remarkable given how much we packed into a few days. I hope we’re able to work again sometime soon. This is probably the best looking set of dissection rushes of the entire series – so very well done.

  The Whole Picture Pty Limited

Rental – My company, The Whole Picture, had a job in Wellington in which we need all the HD equipment and lighting to be sourced locally. Our needs for the shoot were continually changing so we needed the supplier to be flexible and patient and Rocket Rentals were both in spades. The manager, David Morrison, was fantastic and most helpful to deal with. The equipment arrived on time and in excellent condition and the shoot went to plan without a hitch. Rocket Rentals will be the first people we call when we shoot again in New Zealand.

 Movie: “Predicament”

Rental – Working with the team at Rocket is always an absolute pleasure. They are a full service rental facility meaning when something goes wrong there is always someone you can call to get technical support. As it happened on Predicament we had no problems at all. We shot Red during the coldest winter nights and didn’t lose a pixel. I attribute this to Rocket’s cameras being so expertly maintained, everything worked as it should and it was in perfect condition. We had very specific requirements in terms of our camera package and Rocket went to extreme lengths to make sure these requirements were met. Another aspect I love about working with Rocket is they follow up during your shoot and make sure everything is going well. We couldn’t have been happier, a top class company to work with.
