2. An 8 gig(or more) SD card

3. A USB drive of preferably 8 Gigs for storage of video projects.

4. A notebook or folder in which to keep notes, storyboards, scripts and handouts, and of course something with which to write. 

5. Your student ID to check out cameras and other equipment. You may use your own camera if you wish but be sure to secure it at all times. We cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items.
