All students currently enrolled in production courses through the Communication Arts Department have access to equipment and facilities through The Barrington Lab Equipment Center to fulfill their class assignments.
The department strictly prohibits borrowing Equipment or using lab facilities for non-academic use. Students may not use equipment or facilities for projects for co-curricular organizations unless granted approval by first submitting a COMM ARTS EQUIPMENT REQUEST (attached below) form to the Communication Arts Department Chair, Rini Cobbey. Approvals of equipment requests are solely at the discretion of the department chair.

Non-Semester Equipment Use
Special permission for non-academic projects and further development of school projects may be granted to select students for use of Barrington Media Equipment during Winter and Summer breaks based on the following criteria:
• Quality of cinematic form and technique
• Originality of filmmaker's voice, vision, and point-of-view
• Resonance and power of the film's core idea or story
• Feasibility of production
Complete this form, and return to the Production Facilities Manager, Jean-Paul DiSciscio, for review by the Communication Arts Department Faculty at least 30 days before production is slated to begin.
Gordon College offers a variety of video equipment to students enrolled in Production courses. A complete gallery of video inventory is available for download below.
