The Career Center is assisting several production companies to fill carpenter, Welder and artist positions for multiple projects throughout central Mass. If you know of any tradespeople with any of these skills, please ask them to forward a resume to me.
Over the next several weeks, we are looking to identify a dozen or more highly skilled carpenters who could become propmakers, a half-dozen highly skilled welders and up to ten scenic artists.
The target date for the hiring is July 11th, so we’re looking for candidates who can start immediately. All work is project based and pay around $30/hour and include benefits. People work from production to production. Work can last a week or several months.
There are some key factors to consider when selecting candidates:
Flexible-re: worktimes, hours, etc. Can work 7-12 hours each day 6-7 days each week. Good transportation is a must along with a valid driver’s license.
Reliable- zero tolerance for no shows or lateness and good attitude is required. Movie sets and shops can be intense pressure. Mature attitude, respectful and safety conscious.
Propmaking is not carpentry- props are temporary, often need to be moved and only care about what the camera will see. So, a painstaking craftsman will have a big adjustment.
Thanks in advance for getting the word out — resumes or questions can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
