Over the past several years I have handled the production of hundreds of events, films, concerts, shoots and more. In particular, my work at Mole Richardson has given me the opportunity to expand my knowledge of the film industry. Being an 85 year old company, Mole Richardson is not only a historic landmark, but is still a largely used company for feature films everywhere. From lighting, photo, video, and all the equipment that comes with it, it has been my job the past two years to assist photographers, directors, gaffers, and filmmakers obtain their goals.
I have also been working for Premiere Labor as a stagehand for movie premieres, and various events, such as the Toy Story 3 carnival, as well as a box truck driver for the Tron movie premiere in Hollywood. Additionally, Audiofarm has used me for an audio and lighting technician. Previous to working with Mole, I worked for the University of South Florida Sun Dome The USF Sun Dome is a 55,000-square-foot facility that can accommodate over 10,000 visitors.
When I am not busy working to assist others in the industry, I am shooting my own projects. Recently I have been noted as a photographer in the American Cinematographer (ASC) magazine, and also appeared in the Society of Camera Operators (SOC) magazine as a member, and honorary guest for working with Hydroflex.
Hard work and long hours have never intimidated me. Often, I was required to work 10 or 12-hour shifts either day or night to meet schedules for shows. It was not unusual to finish setting up just before an event and begin tearing it down immediately after to make a tight deadline in rearranging seating, stage, lighting, court floors and props for the next. Whatever team I worked with, we always met deadlines and we were always ready for any challenge.
It is my greatest desire to work in the entertainment industry in any capacity where I can apply my skills, assist others and continue to learn about production. I’m not an actor, musician, comedian, or dancer of any sort. But, I am a great production assistant who works hard with spirit, enthusiasm and drive. I am eager to discuss any opportunities to work with your organization.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
