Safety & Compliance

Since the death of the AC Sarah Jones on the feature Midnight Rider in 2014, productions have ramped up safety awareness, but still, even on union shows with experienced crews, accidents happen. And since the recent #MeToo movement, studios and producers have stepped up meetings about Sexual Harassment that all crew are required to attend. Is it making a difference? Do you feel like you will be heard? Is there more we can do as a craft to support each other? Are you getting proper safety information and do you feel respected on your set?  

 

Join us in a group discussion to raise each other's awareness, learn when and how to speak up, and to whom we should address our concerns.

How are script notes used in the editing room: A Conversation With Assistant Editor Carrie Puchkoff

This meeting will be a great opportunity to understand more about how post-production works, and to find out how what we do, and the way we do it, is used in the process.

 

Topics of discussion to include:

  • How post production is set up

  • How an Asst Editor sets up an editing department

  • Connection and workflow between set, posthouse, and editing room

  • Keeping the media together 

  • Organizing the information: what script notes structure and notation is most useful

  • How an edit room operates on a feature versus an episodic TV show

Coffee And.....

Welcome to a new season!  Catch up with members and maybe meet some new ones in this casual meetup. Food for thought: Improving our craft - what would that look like? What support are script supervisors looking for? What areas or skills are we looking to work on? Are we being stymied by new expectations in the current world of production? 

 

New members welcome - please contact us or JOIN

1-3pm @ Playwrights Rehersal Studios

Working on Commericals

Between features and episodic you may take work on commercials. Or perhaps that’s your primary gig. There are several different kinds of projects that fall within the commercial heading. What are they? What makes them different from narrative work and from each other?

Sean Pollock has worked on over 240 of these projects both union and non-union. He will present the various types, explain what it’s like on a commercial set and what is expected from you, and discuss rates and guaranteed hours. To follow up on recent discussion threads, we will have a roundtable discussion about the changing commercial landscape.
