Budget Video Rentals is one of the busiest production equipment rental companies on the east coast. With thousands of pieces of equipment under one roof, they are one of best stocked as well. Based in Miami, Florida, Budget Video rents high definition cameras, lenses, dollies, jibs, cranes, lighting, and grip to filmmakers and production companies all over the world.
This web site is one of our largest projects to date. We photographed hundreds of items, designed and built a custom shopping cart system that handles rentals, and added dozens of custom features to our content management system. The site's database contains thousands of items, and it can track the popularity of each item, and group items that go together. The custom shopping cart remembers returning customers, and can generate Excel spreadsheets of customer orders for the people at Budget Video. Because the names of the equipment are often cryptic, like "AG-AF100" and "AJ-HVX900", we had to build a custom search engine for the site that allows people to find what they're looking for.
