Valuable for students aspiring to enter the world of Filmmaking. Young people everywhere are interested in "breaking in" to film production. However it is a business shrouded in mystique and it is very difficult to find out what it's all about or how to get started. In this six program series, The Crew unravels the mystery and explores the various technical positions that form a film production unit. Covering 18 different departments from Grips to Costume, Lighting to Makeup, the series vividly presents the jobs and lives of film production workers and explores the technical aspects of producing a film by talking to the people who make it happen. In each program, The Crew follows technicians from three various departments, in the milieu of a film set as they perform their jobs. The technicians talk candidly about hierarchy, job demands and the creative aspects of each position. They discuss how to get started, entry-level skills required, pay rates to expect and the personal pros and cons of working in "the business." Special Effects Supervisor: Also known as the Special Effects Coordinator, the sfx Supervisor is the head of the department and designs and directs all the special effects needed on the job. This position requires special skills in pyrotechnics, rigging, engineering and safety. Construction Coordinator: The head of the crew responsible for constructing all the sets in a production. Locations Manager (LM): The head of the department responsible for scouting locations, for securing permits and for making sure that each location is ready for the fi lm crew before filming and is left in a decent state after filming.
