The Cage

Special Projects

If you are not currently enrolled in a course that is supported by the Cage but are involved in creating content that is academically focused, you can request permission to use equipment by submitting a proposal for the intended use of the gear. The proposal will be reviewed by the manager of Production Operations as well as the corresponding faculty member for the equipment items you wish to use (photography or DFT gear).

To be eligible for a Special Project request you must be currently enrolled at UWRF. For the Nikon DSLR cameras, you must have successfully completed one of the courses in which those cameras were used.

Completed proposals should be submitted to Production Operations manager Joe Blum.

The Proposal

The proposal should include the following points:

  • What equipment you would like to borrow
  • The intended use of the equipment
  • The duration of the project you're working on
  • What your prior experience is in working with the equipment

Projects that are eligible for the use of equipment (including, but not limited to):

  • Internship related to field of study (on or off campus)
  • Continuation of a project originally started in a supported course
  • Work being created for portfolio and/or reel

Non-academically focused projects that will not be accepted (including, but not limited to):

  • Commercial purposes (i.e. video taping or photographing weddings)
  • Personal use only
