    Ok I need to shoot a cinematic quality short film, roughly 45 minutes to an hour. The whole movie takes place in one room. What sort of equipment do I need? I would expect 1 or 2 cameras, tripod(s), lighting, microphone is there anything else I'm missing? What can I expect to pay to rent gear like this?

    Uhm. If you've never done this before.. good luck. Are you directing? DPing? Other?? Whats your budget? Whats your story? No offense but given your lack of knowelege I highly doubt this is going to happen. And 45-60 minutes is NOT a short film. Shorts should be under 20. You might as well add 20 minutes to your running time and make it a feature. If youve never shot a film before jumpning into an hour long is not your best bet.

    If you are serious about this... find help.

    Ditto to what Nick has already posted. You'll also need makeup, costumer, script supervisor, grips, gaffer, DP, recordist, boom, set construction/props, craft services, payroll, etc etc. Then you'll need to figure out your editing workflow, music, rights, release, etc etc.

    Making movies isn't just about getting a couple of cameras and some lights.
