I am a Location Manager and a Co-Founder of Circles crewing app. 20+ years of location managing has shown me the difficulties of getting started in this industry and being unable to sustain an initial career.
Through Circles, I hope to create an inclusive platform for everyone to see what work is available and assist in providing career development through training and mentoring. I feel the attitude within the industry needs to change to accommodate a more diverse and inclusive cross section of crew. I hope the group will be able to come up with some good ideas and allow production companies to be more inclusive in their selection of crew. It is important that this is not just a numbers game but a clear effort to change things.
