Audio Suite1

CFAT is excited to announce our new Technical Grants!

Technical grants are a quick turn around grant for in-kind use of our facilities and equipment. These grants are great for small self funded projects, or for helping you get through that last push of a larger project. These grants will be offered three times a year on an annual schedule.

CFAT offers a few types of technical grants to help you finish your projects:

Intensive Post-Production Technical Grant:

The successful applicant will receive a two-month Editing Membership, giving them free access to all of the editing suites.

Intensive Production Technical Grant:

The successful applicant will receive a two-month Production Membership, giving them free access to all of the mobile equipment (except the Blackmagic 4K Production camera).

Four-Month Technical Project Grant:

The successful applicant will receive a two-month production membership giving them access to all mobile equipment (except the Blackmagic 4K Production camera). This two-month period will be immediately followed by a two month editing membership where they will have free access to all editing suites.
