In order to schedule an appointment to work in LightBox, you must have been granted access through attending a basic training demonstration.  This session covers basic studio usage and etiquette, as well as instruction on tungsten (hot) lighting.

All class demos (or those for BFA/MFA) must take place by the end of February.  Matt Adams ( must be consulted before Spring semester starts to arrange a firm demo day on your schedule.



All equipment in Lightbox stays in Lightbox.  The only exceptions are the three large TVs, which can only be checked out for use only in CAB.  There is no discussion on this.  The items in LightBox do not have the proper gear needed for travel.  Items needed for checkout/travel, well, they are in Equipment Checkout.



Documentation of wall works can now be made on the wall to the left upon entering.  Please speak to Matt in advance if you anticipate any damage to the wall at all.



The last appointment of the day (7pm) often can stay late, which is great for slightly longer projects.  Please speak to Matt in advance about this if you anticipate a project lasting into the evening.



Use of the motion capture requires previous training.  If you require training, please see Keith Roberson. Exceptions to these rules are made only by Keith Roberson.
