Additional Access Information
Class Equipment Lists
Many times students do not realize that they already have access to certain equipment without having to go through an Access meeting. For other classes, equipment is needed to complete a project but going through Access is also required. This page is to help you know when you get access, who needs to come to the meeting, and what you already have access to while in the class.
Most production classes have a fixed set of equipment made available. More advanced fiction narrative and documentary production classes also have equipment assigned for the class use, while Advanced Production Project classes require special clearance and special assignment of equipment.
After a student has met the prerequisite Access requirements for the class in which they are enrolled and are added to that class’ equipment group, they may log in to the TMA Checkout System (Connect2) and create a reservation.
WHO NEEDS TO COME?
For Advanced Production Projects, the Producer and UPM need to come to the Access meeting. Any other key crew member that they feel needs to be present to answer questions can come as well. For example, if the film is very focused on the cinematography, it would be a good idea for the DP to come.
