This Week In Trailers: Believer, The Last Dance, In the Aisles, On Hold, West of Sunshine

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week […]

‘Climax’ Trailer: Director Gaspar Noé is Back with a Hypnotic Fever Dream

Hey Carol,
If you are in the union, THEN YOU ARE IN. Jobs go to union members first. And when there is a lot going on and they need more people they are allowed to hire non-union. You shouldn't need to send more resumes, only network more in your field (i.e. production, camera, utilities).
Make sure you put your name on the availability list on the 665 site (this is only accessible by union members). And that you are willing to relocate for productions.
For non-union make sure to ask if they can put you on a referral list.
I'm not sure what the state of the crew industry is at the moment on Oahu (LOST is gone, and was about the only thing). It was about a year and a half ago when I was out of work and was trying to get back into crew work. Then I started a steady job (only 30 hours a week) and stopped bringing my resume by. They loved my resume and work ethics and skills, but I haven't received a call since. Maybe if I kept bringing it I would be union now. I actually plan to stat submitting again, just waiting for director's video review for P4. Don't want to say "I can crew on Oahu" then say "No I can't. I have to go act on Kauai". It would make me look like a fool and never get called again for being a flake.

P.S. For beginners, It doesn't hurt to work for free ONCE. As long as it is a good production company, you work on your free time, and that you will get more paid work out of it. That is how I got started. I was Lead Man for a short film and the Art Director said "People only work for me for free ONCE". And through that it was a "snow ball" of work to the point that I would have to turn my phone off. But that was New York.
Sorry to ramble on. If anyone needs to study the "Back Stage Handbook" for a union test, I have a copy. I can lend it out, but they are out of print and cost $70 for used.

Thanks for all of the information Eric. I have joined 665 and send in my resume often. I live on Kauai so it's easier for me to send. Do you think it would be better if I went to Oahu every couple of weeks to drop it off personally?

In addition... most of the crew work in Hawaii is through the local IA union (Hawaii Local 665). There is not a lot of work going on and there is a lot of people with union status waiting for the call for work. This is what I have told others interested in working as crew. Be persistent. Bring your resume down to the union hall every week or two weeks to show them that that you are here and you want to work. It took me three months of persistence to get two day gigs. That's when I found out it was easier getting acting work and decided to get an acting gig just to get a foot in the door to to hand out my resume as a crew member.
And always carry your resume with you. If you run across a film, TV show, or commercial being filmed; be polite and wait and try to submit your resume to whatever position you are interested in. And as for PA's, PA's do not have union status (we all feared if they ever did). To become a PA your best bet is to submit your resume and interests to the production company themselves (Production Assistant).
Good luck to all
