Master Carpenter

Under the supervision of the set designer and technical director, the master carpenter is ultimately responsible for the construction of all scenic elements of a live production.

Stage Carpenter

Live productions rely on several technical elements to set the mood of the show and express a sense of time and place to the audience; the most obvious to the viewer is generally the set. Before the cast hits the stage on opening night, stage carpenters work behind the scenes to create the environments the actors will occupy.

Production Designer

The production designer collaborates with the director and the cinematographer to establish the look of a film or television production. Every story is intended to leave the audience with a particular emotion, and the design of the set and scenery is just as vital in that mission as an actor’s portrayal of a character and the music that plays under the images on screen. 

Set Buyer

Treasure hunters and shopping mavens searching for their ideal career in entertainment should consider the job of set buyer. As the title states, the set buyer is a professional shopper tasked with searching antique shops and rental houses and scouring yard sales and online auction sites for the props and set dressings that transform a bare set into a convincing environment. 

On-Set Dresser

Desk ornaments, family photos, and other knickknacks are not haphazardly strewn about a set; a crew of artists carefully designs the atmosphere of each space an actor occupies on screen before filming begins. The on-set dresser is charged with implementing that design during filming, and is supervised by the set decorator and lead dresser.
