Production

GENERAL ACCESS TO EQUIPMENT POLICY

Production equipment is available to Producing Members of SAW Video for artistic, independent, and non-commercial productions; all use of SAW Video equipment, facilities and resources must adhere to our mandate.

  • Only qualified Producing Members, with active memberships, have access to rental of SAW Video equipment or facilities.
  • Producing Memberships are $75/year ( = $25 Basic Membership + $50 Producing Member Insurance) or $50.00/6 months ( = $25 Basic Membership + $25 Producing Member Insurance).
  • As of November 16th, 2018, all those interested in signing up for or renewing a Producing Membership must submit an application that details their level of training, skill and experience by email. Read more.) 
  • All prospective Producing Members are required to have taken one of SAW Video’s introductory workshops or have comparable training, ability and experience in using production equipment safely before becoming eligible for a Producing Membership (and, by definition, before becoming eligible to rent equipment or facilities through SAW Video).
  • Producing Members are required to sign an equipment rental contract in person in our offices upon the start or renewal of their membership; they will also need to present us with a piece of valid, government-issued photo identification (driver's license, passport, etc).
  • All pick ups are after 3pm; the return of all rental items, including all of their parts, memory cards, etc., must be made before noon, as otherwise late penalty charges will be applied.  Note that SAW Video is closed on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
  • Weekend rentals (with pick up after 3pm on Friday afternoon and return Monday morning before noon) are invoiced as 1.5 days.
  • Week-long rentals are billed at a rate of 5 days (7 full days of rental would be invoiced as 5 days). 
  • Cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance. If less than 48 hours cancellation notice is given, members will be billed the full price of the rental.
  • We ask that members credit SAW Video in their work. Download SAW Video logo for use in credits.

HOW TO BOOK EQUIPMENT

  1. Again, you must be a qualified and current Producing Member of SAW Video to book and rent equipment from us, so first, please make sure your Producing Membership is up to date - you can always ask us to check as to the status of your membership if you are not sure.
  2. Figure out the following details for the work you plan to do: your day of pick up (again, pick ups are after 3pm), your day of return (returns are before noon), the specific items that you want and the working title/name and nature (short narrative, web-series, music video, etc.) of your project.  Remember that SAW Video is closed on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.  If you're unsure of what specific equipment to ask for, feel free to send us an email or give us a call and we'll try to steer you in the best direction.
  3. Once you've figured out all of those details , we will need you to send an email with this information (day of pickup, day of return, specific items, name and nature of project) as a request to production@sawvideo.com or call our Equipment Manager or Technical Director at 613.238.7648 between 10am-6pm, Mon-Fri.  Please be sure you give your name and let us know how to reach you.  We will confirm with you later as to the booking you are making.
  4. If you need access to a loading dock, please let us know by email request at least a full week (7 full days) in advance.  If the loading dock is available for the period for your request, we will book it for you for a specific one-hour slot; please note that, due to high demand, that one-hour slot will be the only time period when you'd have access to that loading dock.  If the loading dock is not available, we will try to find an alternative for you.
  5. Booking is done on a "first come, first served" basis, so it's best to book your equipment as soon as possible.  If something you want has been booked by someone else, we will let you know of any possible alternatives.
  6. Equipment pickups are between 3pm - 6pm Monday to Friday.  Equipment returns are between 10am - 12pm Monday to Friday.  Members who return equipment or parts thereof late will be charged for an additional day for the late equipment.  Remember that SAW Video is closed on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
  7. Again, cancellations of a booking, in full or in part, must be made 48 hours in advance of the day of pickup. If less than 48 hours cancellation notice is given, members will be billed the full price of the rental.
  8. For a complete inventory list, please see below.
