#wardrobestories

November 5, 2012

The last few weeks have been very crazy for me. I was able to get involved on the Costume Design and Wardrobe team for the filming of Season 2 of a locally filmed web series. I am currently sitting on set during the tail end of dinner break on our last day of shooting until after Hurricane Sandy passes by. I have had long days. Seen the sun go down and come up again on the same set. Made a lot of friends. Gained a lot of professional contacts.

It has been a rewarding experience working on a project as a crew member for a change. Though I have experience building sets and costumes, I usually find myself acting on stage. This web series shoot has opened my eyes to how important it is to be kind to your tech staff. I have worked with a range of actors over the last two weeks ranging from lovely and talented to very ungrateful, rude and unappreciative people. I always try to have a pleasant disposition toward tech staff, but I can honestly say I have snapped in a stressful moment at one time or another.

From now on, I promise to always, at the very least, say thank you to any tech, crew, or management personnel I work with from this day forward! I hope you will all do the same, too!

    Coming from someone who does stage management to help pay her rent, the people I’ve loved working with the most are the people who were the one’s who showed the most appreciation to the crew. Those are the people I try to network with to give them more opportunities.
