The RTF Department utilizes industry standard video and audio equipment for student use in production-based courses. Equipment is reserved for students enrolled in specific classes. Students are required to be properly trained on all equipment and able to demonstrate basic proficiency in class before being approved to check out equipment. The RTF department is unfortunately unable to check out equipment to non-RTF students, non-RTF staff or to the public.
There are a number of rental houses & production services in the community for filming and video equipment, including:
- New Republic Studios
- Precision Camera
- Omega Broadcast Group
- MP&E Camera and Lighintg
- Mopac Media
- Rock n Roll Rentals
- Texas Media Systems
Equipment Check In/Out Hours:
Students must schedule at least 30 minutes for check in/out. Please make an appointment at least 24 hours in advance.
RTF Equipment Checkout Process:
To check out equipment, please link to the Equipment Checkout website. If you have not made an account, please do so and then email the equipment manager, Kevin Anderson. He will authorize your account and email confirmation ASAP. For instructions on creating an account and using the site, link to the User’s Manual.
Be sure to read and understand the rules for using equipment in the ACC-RTF Department.
On the day of equipment pick up or drop off to the new Highland Campus Creative Digital Media Center, expect further directions via email as to the logistics.
