working on a movie set

Recommended Posts

the other thread about the working visa didn't seem to get the answers i would have liked, so here's another attempt...since i've got the working visa thing covered now...

 

ok, so i'm trying to get a job working on the set of "the chronicles of narnia" which is being filmed in new zealand at the moment. i imagine production will go on for a year or more, so i'm not worried about that.

 

i'm really trying my best to get in touch with anyone that i can to get a job on the set as whatever i can...even the most menial job would suffice...i am really just looking for the experience and excitement of being in a different country, working on a movie set.

 

so, does anyone have any experience working on a movie set? anyone know how to go about bugging producers/directors into giving up a job?

help a brotha out. i know some of you guys/girls have probably worked on set for something or another at one time...maybe currently.

Lots of union stuff I imagine. Call the company

producing it and ask who've they've got covering

the stage-hang/grips. Usually it's some union

or organization I'm sure... get a hold of those

people.

 

That's all I can think of.

my friends family was in the movie biz. they currently run a lighting/ grip equipment rental comany in Van.

EVERYBODY is union. so my suggestion would be to contact I.A.T.S.E. (i have no idea what that stands for, but thats the union name, i'm sure google can help)

 

On a side note, my friends brother worked 7 months on and 5 off for the past 3 years. He pulled down 90 grand in the 7 months. But, those were 12 hour days (minimum) almost 7 days a week. You get paid overtime for what you work, but it still takes a toll.

 

Oh, having some sort of trade or skill can help you out alot. You bartend, right? Maybe try to finagle a job with the catering company.

thanks for the info. i'm googling now.

i did email the company that's producing it, walden media. that was earlier this morning...so, i'm awaiting a response. i tried everything i could think of when i emailed them...telling them that i'd take the most menial position available, as long as i worked on the set of this movie.

 

i wonder if i could get a job at the catering place...drinks are a goood way too loosen people up and get a better job..not to mention the actresses...heh.
