PRODUCTION SUPPORT & PRODUCTION COMPANIES FACILITATE BUSINESS
Production support refers to a compilation of services that are required for entertainment media production. These include crew positions like directors of photography, 2nd unit directors, actors & dialect coaches, and steadicam operators that represent professional associations, unions and guilds. Crews only appear behind the scenes in these various areas of expertise: art, sets, props, construction, scenic backgrounds, special effects, hair & makeup, costumes, camera operators, production sound, grips, electricians, location scouts, editorial/script, visual effects, etc. Other disciplines include casting directors who interface with talent & modeling agencies, trainers and choreographers of various specialties like sword fighting, fencing, and stunts, to those who budget & schedule productions.
