COMM DEPARTMENT SURVEY ON VIDEO EQUIPMENT
Many Comm students take our video and film classes. But high student demand requires a high inventory of technology to support quality work. And, the current inventory of 20 DSLR cameras and lenses is insufficient to meet the needs of 145+ students each semester. That's why we want to hear from you.

If you have taken production courses in the past (COMM 335/336 Video Communication I & II, COMM 338 Intro Film Production, COMM 339 Fiction Film Production, COMM 461 Documentary Production, COMM 301 Photography & Cinematography, and COMM 510 Advanced Photography & Cinematography), please complete our quick survey on your experience of the production equipment check-out process.

The survey should take you less than 5 minutes to finish and it will be closed soon (Sunday, Nov 18th, midnight). Here's the link: https://goo.gl/forms/85g3BEYaE2LmZAli1
