Everything You Need to Tell Your Story

Costume Shop

Film at Mason students can borrow costumes from the School of Theater Costume Shop. Contact Costume Shop Supervisor Laurel Dunayer to make a request or set an appointment. Requests should include such information as size, color, and time period in which the production is set. The Costume Shop is in the deLaski Performing Arts Building, A133 (across from the Blackbox). Fill out the costume loan student check-out form.

Prop Shop

Props can be borrowed for Mason affiliated classes, projects and events from the CVPA Scene Shop on a first come, first served basis by appointment only. Contact Technical Director Carrie Cox to make a request or schedule an appointment. The scene shop is unable to accommodate same day requests, so please plan accordingly. Any items borrowed will be recorded on the Props Check Out form at the time of pick up. The scene shop has some restrictions on what can be loaned out and items must be returned on time in the condition they were in when initially checked out. Failure to do so may result in individuals becoming ineligible to borrow props in the future. The Scene Shop is in the deLaski Performing Arts Building, A123 (next to the elevator and restrooms).

Certificate of Insurance

Insurance for Equipment Rentals

Many students use area rental houses for additional equipment. Students interested in renting equipment from DC Camera and The Washington Source must provide insurance when using it at off-campus locations. For more information on COIs, visit the Film and Video Studies Student Blackboard page

Off-campus Locations

Off-campus location owners might ask Film students to provide a Certificate of Insurance (COI). If you need a COI, make an appointment with Film at Mason Academic and Program Manager Samantha Sinagra. You will need to provide a Location Agreement signed by the owner/manager of the property. Mason's Office of Risk Management requires a two-week turnaround to process a COI request, so allow for sufficient time prior to your shoot.
