Scene Shop Policy

SCENE SHOP POLICY 

Access to the Scene shop is restricted to Scene Shop Graduate Assistant, the student workers and the Technical Staff. 

Students are not allowed to operate the power tools in the Scene shop. The Graduate TA will operate the equipment for you when available or previously arranged. 

Students are allowed to check out sanders, drills, paint rollers, and trays from the Scene shop. 

Tools borrowed from the Scene shop must be returned immediately following your shoot. 

THE SCENE SHOP DOES NOT SUPPLY PLASTIC DROP CLOTHS, PAINT, BRUSHES OR ROLLER COVERS.

Students must reserve flats through the scene shop by placing a “HOLD” tag on each wall desired. They may reserve flats up to two weeks prior to the construction of their sets. 

Students may not destroy flats, poke or cut holes in flat walls, wallpaper or plaster set walls. Flats must be returned in the same condition they were rented – with the exception of paint. 

If you remove a flat from the flat storage area, you must return it as you found it. A student will be fined $50.00 if the flats are not returned properly. 

Students may not paint flats in the loading dock area. All painting of flats must be done in the sound stages or outside with proper drop cloths.  Do not use newspapers as drop cloths. 

All paint brushes or rollers used will be washed thoroughly in the paint room and discarded properly. 

DO NOT THROW PAINT CANS, UNWASHED BRUSHES, OR USED ROLLERS IN THE TRASH CANS!  

You may leave empty cans and brushes, etc. outside the Paint room door as long as you’ve placed a drop cloth on the floor first! Any paint spills must be cleaned up immediately. 

DO NOT POUR PAINT INTO ANY SINK! 

LMU requires the use of Dunn Edwards water-based paint only.
