Labour Exchange

At Lighthouse, one of our goals is to always nurture and support upcoming filmmakers. We remember how much of a struggle it can be when you’re first starting out and scrambling to get your budget together. That’s where the Lighthouse Labour Exchange comes in. Designed as a way to make gear affordable for everyone, the program could be just right for your next production!

How does it work?
Come into our warehouse and we’ll find some tasks for you to do. We’ll calculate a cheaper rental price based on your time spent here!

I’m an aspiring director / producer. Can I still help out if I don’t know anything about lighting?
While a general knowledge of lighting is always preferred, it’s by no means essential. Just let us know your skill set

How does the exchange break down?
Here’s how we break it down…

👷 1 x 8 hour day of labour
💰 $250 discount off your rental

If two people from your production want in on the Lighthouse Labour Exchange, that’ll be $500 off your rental.

Thanks for the breakdown! Does any day work?
We try to complete Labour exchanges before your shoot but occasionally if timings don’t work, we can do after your production as long as it’s no longer than 2 weeks after your shoot.
