Swank Audio Visuals

P. Ray Swank and his wife Lucille founded Swank Audio Visuals more than 70 years ago. The company initially entered the market as a portable projection service that supplied motion picture entertainment for events. Today, the organization has grown to include a wider variety of multimedia event services, from design to installation and operation.

Artistic Director

The artistic director of a performing arts organization, such as a regional theater or opera, is the chief creative officer responsible for the artistic vision of the company. This person assumes creative control over choices regarding show selection and staging, and those concerning the employment of artistic and production staff.  He or she may also serve as a spokesperson for the organization and is therefore a public figure whose goal is to attract audiences through positive interaction with the media and surrounding community. 

Prop Master

A sword hanging on the wall is a set decoration, but a sword in an actor’s hand is a prop. The person responsible for scavenging and creating the dozens (even hundreds) of props for a stage production is the prop master.

Production Assistant

A job as a production assistant is the unofficial training program of the film and television industry. If you do not live next door to one of the Weinstein brothers and are in no way related to Steven Spielberg or Ron Howard, then nabbing a gig as a PA is the best way to break into film and TV.

Line Producer

Expenditures on every film or television production are divided in two segments: above the line and below the line. Above the line refers to writers, producers, directors, and actors (including extras). Below the line refers to everything else: that is, crew, sets, equipment rental, insurance, and so on. In the middle of that division is the line producer—the line.

Stage Manager

The stage manager is the right hand of the director through pre-production and rehearsal. With the curtain ready to go up, the director moves on to the next project and the stage manager is left to ensure the creative integrity of the show. After the director has left the show in his or her capable hands, both the cast and crew now answer to the stage manager.
