About Shift Dynamics: Cinema Gear Specialists

Who we are

We’re an industry leader in providing camera cars, cinema robotics, and state-of-the-art production resources to professional film and commercial projects.

Our turnkey dynamic camera systems, technology, and support has been employed by blue ribbon clients such as Audi, Chevrolet, Ford, Mitsubishi, ESPN, NFL, Apple Music, Spotify, and many more.

Our cinema equipment is ready to ship from Nashville to Los Angeles, Chicago, NYC, Atlanta, New Orleans, and all stops in between.

Headquartered in Nashville, TN, we deploy a fleet of state-of-the-art vehicles, a comprehensive and sophisticated inventory of cinematic video equipment, and highly trained professionals to support productions of all styles, sizes and budgets throughout the world. From commercials to feature films, there is essentially no production situation that we can’t supply the right equipment for. For example, we operate with the same gear used to make the blockbuster movies Dune and Thor: Ragnarok.

How we do it

This is all possible due to two things: our world-class people and our high-quality gear.

Our highly trained staff of professional technicians, drivers, and operators have traveled the globe delivering exceptional work for our clients, always providing unparalleled expertise to ensure your project exceeds expectations.

We believe in being much more than just a competent contractor, we want to extend our relationship with our clients, becoming the creative problem solver you’ve always wanted to work with.

Of course, it helps when your camera rental house carries some of the most popular brands in the industry for shooting broadcast quality, full frame HD video, including products by ARRI, Sony (Sony VENICE 2), Zeiss, RED, Angenieux, Canon, and Sigma, just to name a few.

We also have the accessories to support your audio, lighting, transport, and grip work as well. We pretty much have it all!

Our Inventory

On the other side of the coin, our exclusive inventory of equipment is one of the most comprehensive inventories of cinema robotics and camera car technology in the nation, setting us apart in the industry with hard-to-find vehicles and robotics that provide unique capabilities and world-class results.

We have – prepped in our facility – camera cars for any terrain (Mercedes ML63, Chevy Silverado Trail Boss, and Can-Am Maverick X3), an extensive fleet of production support vehicles (3-ton Grip Truck, 2 Mercedes Client Vans, multiple equipment transport vans, and a Dodge Ram field support truck just to name a few), state-of-the-art camera car tools (2 MotoCrane Ultras, MotoCrane Radical, Panther Tower Riser, and a Flowcine Black Arm), cutting-edge cinema robotic technology (Motorized Precision MIA robotic arm with track, Motorized Precision Colossus, and a Motion Impossible AGITO – less than a handful of these in the United States), and a comprehensive inventory of premium cameras, lenses, and specialty camera support tools.

Are there any restrictions on what type of cameras and gear you can rent in Nashville?

No, there is not; however, you must carry insurance. And some equipment will require our in-house crew. Shift Dynamics offers a wide range of top-of-the-line camera rental options and specialized systems for commercial work, live events, and capturing fast motion on location. Whether you're an established filmmaker, a creative agency, or a first-time music video producer, we're happy to guide you through the process of renting our gear.
