Assistant Property Master

Just about everything an actor touches or uses in a scene is considered a prop. Taking into account the full run of a two-hour movie, that could amount to hundreds or even thousands of objects. To keep the massive inventory organized and make sure that every item is at the cast’s fingertips when it’s needed, the assistant property master is the right hand of the department.

Theatrical Milliner

A theatrical milliner is a hat maker who is specifically trained in constructing headwear for the stage or film and television. This person works closely with the costume designer to create character-specific hats, bonnets, and other accessories that further enhance the authenticity of the show and complete the actor’s look.

Pierre’s Costumes

Founded as Pierre’s Uniforms Inc., in 1943, the uniform manufacturer transitioned into the entertainment industry as a costume fabrication and rental house with the purchase of Miller Costumier’s (active since 1876) inventory in 1961.

Construction Foreman

Scenery is one of the most comprehensive visual elements of a film or television production. Sets establish a time and place but can also become characters in themselves, with great craftsmanship and effort put forth to providing an immersive environment in which the cast plays out the story. Just consider for a moment the iconic places audiences have traveled through scenery, like the bridge of the Starship Enterprise or the untamed and ominous ruins of Kurtz’s Cambodian compound.
