Ask for a student discount to make your budget go further. If you’re making a student film, we understand it can be tricky to get everything you need. It’s not always possible to borrow everything from friends or fellow students. The college may only have so much equipment available. You sometimes need to look elsewhere – Gear Factory can help!

We’ve been supplying students from NFTS, Central Film School and MET Film School with great kit at affordable rates for many years – so if you’re a student get in touch!

How to qualify

  1. You will need to provide a valid student ID – Uni Student ID card (as issued by the University), NUS or ISIC cards only.  This is in addition to your passport, which is still required for ID verification purposes. Uni cards without an expiry date must be accompanied by an NUS or ISIC card which displays an expiry date.
  2. You must provide your tutor as a referee. Referees may need to be updated if you are now applying for a student discount and have previously hired from Gear Factory.


That’s it – just a couple of simple steps and you could stretch your filming budget even further.

Remember to ask about our student discount at the time you make your hire enquiry.
