Yes, I'm a member of IATSE 478 (pending transfer) and also IATSE 480
Crew. I'm a Construction Coordinator. I am part of the Art Department and manage the building of sets, on stage and at location. Including carpentry, welding, greens, paint, plaster, and general labor as well as budgeting, providing tools, materials, and staffing of all of the construction trades.
I live in Baton Rouge. I think it's a good idea to have meetups in Shreveport, New Orleans, and Baton Rouge. Maybe meetings in Central Louisiana or the North Shore would be a good idea too.
True Grit, Gambit, Legion, Macgruber, Easy Money, Stargate Universe, and others. I was recently working on The Longmire series, which airs on A&E.
Film and TV employment is very much dependent on good networking and good industry connections. I hope the meetups can help me meet as many new people as possible who are either working or are actively seeking work.
I'm a recent transplant from "Tamale-wood" to "Hollywood-south" I work full time on features and TV.
