Not yet a union member, but I'm working on accruing enough hours to qualify.
Crew: swing PA or grip. I love lighting and rigging! I'm still learning a lot and working my way through the Set Lighting Technician's Handbook. I've also done some camera op, some assistant camera work, some boom op, and some filling in for prop master.
Now in New Orleans.
A feature in Austin (hasn't been released yet), an industrial, and lots of short films as well as web episodes.
I love the technical aspects of crew work, especially the mechanics. I love picking up a light stand and moving it, panning lights, laying dolly tracks, etc. When everything comes together and the shot looks really good, that's when it's artistically satisfying. I love the times when everyone works as a team and feels good about the project. I hope to learn more and become a gaffer. I'd like to meet other people in the industry and hear about projects that I can help with.
