Affordable Equipment Rentals

Step 1: Take an Orientation

During orientation, we get to know the members and take a tour of the facility. Then we sit down together to discuss DCM policies, practices and production criteria that promote producer success and ensure the long-term viability of our program.

Sign up for Orientation here.

Step 2: Take the applicable Certification Class

All courses are kept to a 3-4 hour duration to make them affordable and accessible to all. Once members complete the applicable class, they are welcome to reserve the corresponding equipment. A video editing class certification is not required to reserve a DCM edit bay or to rent an Apple MacBook Pro laptop.

For more info, check out our Reservations Process & Policies.

Step 3: Make the Reservation. Come onsite. Learn by doing.

Once a member producer completes training for a specific access facility space or piece of equipment, they are certified and can begin making facility and/or equipment reservations. All reservations are confirmed by email and by appointment only.
