Crewing Up for The Shoot!


Tuesday night on the wonderful patio of El Gato Azul, over a fantastic spread of brews and tapas, the core of our Tech Crew for DVS met for the first time. This would be the Camera Department, the Production Sound Department, the Grip/Electrical Department, the Producer and the Director.

Besides making each other’s acquaintance, we decided on our work flow for the sound (the mic to hard drive course the sound signal will take). And planned a test shot prior to the first day of principal photography, to make sure all these fancy plans will work out when we have actors doing actor-ly things in front of both departments.

Its a pretty solid crew and they give me a lot of confidence. Here’s the roll call:

Camera Department:
Director of Photography – Forrest Sandefer
 
Sound Department
Sound Recordist – Phill Hammon
Sound Mixer – Nick Stecki
Sound Boom Operator – Jerod MacDonald-Evoy
 
Grip/Electrical
Gaffer – Chad Castigliano
 

If you’d like to get some experience working on a film crew, here’s your chance!

We’re still looking for:

  • (1) Assistant camera person to work with our DP on the camera
  • (3) Grips to work with our Gaffer to set up lights and staging
  • (1) Production Assistant to work with our Assistant Director, Cynthia Kitts Sobo.

If you’re interested, just send an email to thedeadvotessociety@gmail.com – and put “Crew” in the Subject line.

See you at Principal Photography!
