The Goldroom houses the film production resources for Dodge College. This includes the camera, sound, grip, and electric equipment used by Dodge College students on your productions. We do not carry post-production equipment, props, wardrobe, or media (like DVDs and SD cards). The Goldroom handles equipment requests and reservations as well as provides technical support for production equipment. We also offer some training via boot camps which are held throughout the semester.

Anyone checking out Goldroom equipment agrees to abide by the policies stated in the Dodge College Production Guide.

Tuesday Playtime

Do you feel comfortable with the camera you're shooting on this weekend?  Need a little more practice with the Tascam recorder?  You might be able to come in on Tuesday and get some hands-on experience with that equipment!

The Goldroom has offered a little known service on Tuesdays that allows students to look at or operate equipment in order to help familiarize themselves with gear they will be using.  Email us at and let us know if you would like to come in and look at a particular camera or sound recorder.  If the equipment is available, and if the Goldroom can accommodate the request, then we can pull some equipment to be used in the Goldroom lobby on Tuesday afternoons.

Please be aware that Goldroom staff may be unavailable to answer questions.  Also, the equipment must not leave the Goldroom lobby.
