We have no employees. We hire local and some not-so-local production crew members as needed for a job. That way, you aren't paying for salaries when the crew isn't actively working!
That being said, we do have a few crew members that we use religiously, depending on needs - some for over 17 years!
He’s our 'California Dude'. Like many from his State, he headed east for his fame and fortune.
Daniel's a very gifted shooter, but he's had to explain to his family that 'shooter' means 'camera operator'.
With a sibling in law enforcement, it was making for interesting family gatherings.
Emily is our world explorer. Originally from Greensboro she has traveled to Europe, the Mediterranean and most recently Thailand.
She started her study of film and video production AFTER her studies in Science. We are thrilled to have her as a team member. Her love of film, travel and science are going to make her a noted documentarian.
If you've watched sports on Fox or TBS, you've probably see Chris' work.
He's been a jib(camera crane) operator with those networks for several years, along with many others.
Chris has been a videographer on our team for over 15 years.
Our Queen of Multi-tasking, Tess uses her sweet communication skills as a Production Manager and a Producer.
Here are some of the things Tess helps with; scheduling catering, arranging security, travel arrangements, purchasing and arranging set decor, crew hiring & equipment rentals and makeup for shiny faces as needed.
She also oversees the equipment load in, setup, its strike and shipment. Tess says that she loves the challenge of organizing chaos.
Our big man on set. Well, he is over 6 feet tall. It was John’s voice that first brought him to work with us. We met at a recording studio - he has an amazing voice. It was his audio and camera skills that have kept him with us since 1994.
He reigns from Ohio but has stayed in the South because it is just too dang cold up north. The only bad thing about John - unless you have caller ID you never know when he is calling because he will speak to you in one of over a dozen different character voices.
Coming in at over 6 ft tall, Lee is our go to guy for getting shots above the crowd. Lee has joined our team on adventures from coast to coast, and even into the wilds of British Columbia a couple of times, but what he really loves to do is edit.
He enjoys crafting together stories from interviews and is quite gifted in this area. He also enjoys script writing and critiquing movies. Not our most opinionated team member, but dang close.
Every large production needs a manager. Sabrina is the best we've ever seen. She can organize and herd cats, err...I mean 'people', in her sleep.
Brina is also an accomplished makeup and special effects artist.
