I worked in the media industry on both sides of the table in advertising, marketing and PR industries for over 20 years. I now concentrate on media production management and locations scouting/management.
Together with my son, Brenden, we manage our own production business crewing and managing various aspects of commercial video and print production, "Locations & Crew".
We are members of IATSE 209--Ohio. However, we do accept some non-union work.
We scout and manage locations for Feature Film, TV, Commercial & Print productions.
I handle the script reading and breakdowns for locations for our clients. AND, I have been told quite often that I have fantastic insight and FEEL for the tone and types of locations that are needed to bring the script to life.
Brenden's main focuses are in the areas of Set Design and Dressing and Props Management. He also does Assistant Director work as a 2nd or 2nd2nd, currently non-guild. And, he does assist me sometimes when locations jobs require more than one scout and manager, or when the jobs require a scout/manager and a PA.
We work mainly in Ohio, PA, KY and WV but can scout locations nationwide.
We Both have experience as 2nd2nd ADs (non-union).
I also work as a commercial Production Supervisor, Production Manager, Production Coordinator, Accounting Assistant (features) and Casting Assistant (features).
We are both familiar with union contract rules and regs for SAG and IATSE. Brenden is very adept at handling SAG contracts for feature films as an AD.
Brenden is also an experienced SAG ACTOR and STUNT ACTOR and will soon be DGA as he is finishing up the last few months of being a Key Set PA on union features.
We both have reputations for being honest, intelligent, problem solvers and hard working.
We can help you crew your union or non-union project and manage it.
