Open for Business

Welcome to CharmCine. We are Baltimore's camera rental house for the motion picture industry, and this is the first blog post to kick off our grand online opening. For many local Baltimore filmmakers, the faces behind CharmCine may be familiar since we originally got our start on the production side under the name Brumar Films, where we dabbled in rentals. However, after years of serving our peers, we decided it was time to turn it up and not make you, our customers, work around our production schedule. It's time to expand our inventory beyond our own needs so that we can offer a selection that can support a variety of projects.

The biggest motivational factor for this decision has been staring us all in the face for years. Since the closing of Baltimore's former rental house, there has been a void that could not be filled by companies in other cities and states. This void is the need for a local full-service shop, which we hope to be. Today we open our metaphorical doors to the public via this new website, which will allow you to create your rental packages easily and submit to us for reservation. At the moment, we are working as a virtual office and offering delivery services to provide your gear. It is our intention to move into a physical storefront as soon as possible within the year so that we can better serve the community with a space where we can all interact, communicate, and learn together.

This website and CharmCine as a whole will be growing quickly, so keep checking in for new inventory, and be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed on events, deals, and news. We are also on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as @CharmCine_ so link up with us there as well. Thank you for taking the time to check out the site and read this prelude of things to come.
