EQUIPMENT ORIENTATION WORKSHOP (free for members)
Upcoming workshops:  1/11/14, 2/8/14  (1 - 3 PM)
This is a mandatory workshop for new members who would like to rent equipment. Long time members are also encouraged to come and brush up on their technical know-how. In order to help you get the most out of the equipment you rent we are providing a free workshop on the second Saturday of every month. During the workshop, we will learn how to use all of the equipment available to our members, including film & video cameras, microphones, tripods, etc. Please register for the orientation in advance by calling 716-884-7172 or e-mail our Tech Director (mark@squeaky.org).
