Craig Jackson: Designing 'Chicago Fire'

Scenic Carpenter

Green screen sound stages and virtual scenery are becoming more prevalent in film and television production, but most productions—save for maybe some reality programs—still require the labor and skill of trained craftspeople to build the sets that complete the environment that the characters inhabit.

Set Costume Supervisor

It is rare that a costume designer works on location with the production crew during principal photography. More often, the costume designer designates a surrogate that will execute the design on set and provide leadership for the costume department.

Paint Foreman

The paint foreman may be hired by the paint coordinator and begins work during pre-production on a film or television program. This person is second in command of the paint department and must be capable of assuming the role of the crew head in the event that the paint coordinator is unavailable.

Mode Studios

Mode Studios is a highly diversified creative media boutique operating out of Seattle, WA, and founded by Bob and Colleen Bonniol. The studio specializes in live and video production and in the design of multimedia solutions.

PSAV Presentation Services

PSAV Presentation Services specializes in corporate events, conventions, and trade shows. The production resource company operates offices in at least 700 hotels and more than 30 off-site warehouses and production facilities. 

Assistant Art Director

The assistant art director is responsible for executing tasks delegated by the art director; these may include management of personnel, disbursement of budget allowances, and overseeing art department activities on set.

Storyboard Artist

Storyboarding a script essentially transforms pages of dialogue and description into a comic book. Sequential single-frame illustrations are compiled to depict sequences or scenes that may be too complex to accurately describe in words alone. The director and other members of the production staff rely on storyboards to demonstrate camera angles and lay out shots that may require considerable post-production with the inclusion of visual effects.

Hudson Scenic Studio

Hudson Scenic Studio opened in 1980 as a small shop in upstate New York with five employees. Since that time, the studio has moved to Yonkers, and now occupies a 72,000-square-foot facility that caters to the design and fabrication needs of the live entertainment industry.

Set Decorator

The set decorator is responsible for converting the blank canvas of the set into a space that feels authentic, lived-in, and believable. This artist deals in the details, the small touches that reveal to the audience something about the person or people who occupy the locations of films and television shows.
