Costume Shop Manager

The costume shop manager is a logistical supervisor who collaborates closely with the costume designer to oversee the fabrication and fit of all garments for theatrical productions, as well as film and television shows. This person does not participate in constructing costumes, but is responsible for overseeing the shop staff and ensuring that wardrobe is delivered on budget and in a timely manner.

Re-recording Mixer

In the post-production process for film and television, the re-recording mixer is responsible for pulling together the complete soundtrack, and refining that audio for technical and aesthetic quality.

Concept Artist

Within the art department of a film or television production, a concept artist aids designers in the rendering or drafting necessary to clarify ideas for the construction of props, scenery, costumes, and visual effects elements.

Special Effects Supervisor

Computer-generated visual effects have transformed film and television forever, and the applications grow ever more sophisticated. Yet there’s nothing like a live-action fireball resulting from the bad guy’s SUV careening off Mulholland Drive and onto the hillside below. For the real-life disaster drama of explosions, tidal waves, and earthquakes, the film and television industry rely on the talents and training of the special effects team. 

Sound Effects Editor

Without the noises and sounds that accompany all physical action in real life, a movie or television show lacks the reality that our brains expect and need in order to fully become immersed in the viewing experience. The sound effects editor works under the direction of the supervising sound editor and is responsible for manufacturing, recording, and editing all sound effects tracks included in a film or TV show.

ADR Editor

Nothing can take a viewer out of the fantasy that a film creates quicker than garbled dialogue. As a pivotal member of the audio post-production team, the ADR editor makes sure that all the spoken dialogue in a film is of the highest possible audio quality.

Script Reader

In entertainment production, a script reader is the gatekeeper between the scriptwriter and the development executive with the power to greenlight scripts. This person keeps the crap off the boss’s desk and puts forward only the material with real promise.

Supervising Sound Editor

The supervising sound editor is a department head who oversees the entire post-production sound crew, including the music editor, sound editor, Foley artist, and ADR editor.

Western Costume Company

Traveler and trader L.L. Burns founded Western Costume Co. after a run-in with a cowboy actor, William S. Hart. Burns observed the terribly inaccurate Indian costumes worn by actors in the early Western films, and when passing by Hart’s set, he made the filmmakers aware of his protest. Burns was hired on the spot to outfit the cast—he had accumulated a vast inventory of Native American goods—and the costume shop was born.
