All students are expected to abide by all rules and regulations established by the DSU Digital Film Faculty and Staff.
1. USE OF DEPARTMENT EQUIPMENT/FACILITIES:
Department equipment and production/post-production facilities are to be used for class projects ONLY. DSU Film students are prohibited to allow anyone, other than fellow classmates, to handle, store, or operate department equipment.
2. STUDENTS MUST meet with Ben Braten and Judea Runs Through in order to get approval for a student project. This meeting will be used to help the student tentatively schedule the production and equipment checkout. And if needed suggested crew members to run camera, audio, or G&E. You MUST have an approved Crew List before your equipment request will be considered.
3. EQUIPMENT AND FACILITY RESERVATIONS
Students should email their reservation requests with Judea (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least 3 days (72 hours) prior to checking-out equipment. The 72-HOUR RULE will be strictly enforced! (If you want to use any of the school facilities you should speak with Christina Merrill.)
