Carrine V. M. Todman, MTA

Pal-Tech, Inc.

Logistics Specialist

From: Eddie Smith

Hey Carrine–

Wanted to make sure I forwarded you the information about

the position that's opening up here.

As I mentioned, it's mostly an administrative position

(there's lots of filing), with some creative and production duties. On

the administrative side, the coordinator handles the paperwork involved

on our productions. That ranges from receiving the initial Request

forms from our sales department, creating a file for that client,

entering the new project onto our weekly Production Update reports, to

receiving our vendors' invoices, submitting them to our accounting

department, and creating our billing statements for the clients when

we're all done. From keeping track of all this paperwork, the

coordinator is also the best person to handle the budget reports, where

we track how much we spend from month to month.

The coordinator also helps me with setting up everything

from auditions to shoots. This can range from reaching out to talent

agencies to solicit actors for casting calls to booking the crew,

studios, or locations for our shoots.

It's of great benefit, but not essential, that the

production coordinator has some production experience. Right now, all

three of us have editing experience, which helps when we're backed up

with lots of little projects. The departing coordinator occasionally

sat in on, or conducted, production meetings with clients, and has on

several occasions, served as the director on the project. Again, it's

not essential to know coming in, but it is something we'd try to teach,

so it helps if the person has an interest. There are at least a couple

of projects a year that the coordinator spearheads and handles all of

the logistics on. The departing coordinator even did make-up for

on-camera talent… again, it's not a requirement, but someone with all

those skills would be wonderful to find. Wow… the new person has big

shoes to fill.

The position is hourly, with overtime. There's always at

least 40 hours of work to do per week around here…

–Eddie
