Scenic Carpenter

Green screen sound stages and virtual scenery are becoming more prevalent in film and television production, but most productions—save for maybe some reality programs—still require the labor and skill of trained craftspeople to build the sets that complete the environment that the characters inhabit.

Lead Carpenter

Filming is an involved and complicated process with numerous teams working in collaboration to bring the several logistical and creative pieces together. The set construction process is a small example of that; many skilled craftsmen and women work diligently to complete pieces of a larger design that come together only through cooperation and careful planning.

Set dressing is a simple task—place a dish there, a curtain here—that plays an important role in the realism and continuity of a film or television production. A bare set of walls or empty backlot street is not nearly as convincing or enveloping as a fully dressed environment with all of the ordinary items that humans interact with in real life. 

Construction Buyer

Hired during pre-production of a film, television show, or live production, the construction buyer works under the direction of the construction coordinator and construction foreman to source all materials necessary to complete the build of set pieces and scenery.

Painter

Scenery grounds a story in a particular time and place and is one of the visual elements that most absorbs an audience into the scene with the cast on screen. Carpenters are responsible for building those sets, but the sets are never complete until the crew of painters has taken their brushes to them.
