I am a production operations director representing a unit housed within Stanford University in the SF Bay Area, California. As the internal production team grows, we have an increased need to find qualified crew members for various field and studio based projects. Currently, I'm looking for sound recordists and 1st AS/Boom Operators that would be available to work 5-hour half-days and 8-hour full days. Within a given calendar year, I usually have around 15-20 full-days of production work and another 10-15 half-days available.
There's a few things that make this job slightly different from the typical film production:
- The university pays by the hour. We have competitive hourly wages for the SF Bay Area.
- Worked hours accrue paid sick time and employees qualify for overtime.
- My team owns its own equipment. We use a lot of SoundDevices and Lectrosonics.
PM me if you're interested, I've typically found that my producers' project requirements work well for people that need to fill up space in between longer term projects.
