When we run a production for you, you can bring your own team which we can supplement if needed - or we can hire you an entire cast and crew with talented and professional artists that fit your requirements and have a good track record with us!
Our department heads for the talent and the crew departments organize evaluations for each team member after having worked with them, and keep their strengths and relevant attributes on file, so that they can refer them when they are right for the production in question.
Heads of the Talent Department: Marcella Di Pasquale & Cambell Dodson
We would love to support your casting efforts by finding matches for your search in our network of trained and skilled actors. This may include background talent and featured extras!
If you are looking for a Producer or a member of the production office, such as a Production Manager or Line Producer, a Production Coordinator, a Location Manager, a Production Accountant, or other, you can see our list of Validus Producers under the “Team” tab to contact someone individually, or you can contact us for a recommendation.
WRITERS AND SCREENPLAY EDITORS
Whether you are in concept design or already have a draft, you can bring on a writer or editor based on our recommendation to ensure you have a shoot-ready script when you go into production.
SCRIPT COVERAGE WRITERS
If you need professional coverage on one or several screenplays that you are considering to shoot or are writing, our Script Coverage Writers will provide you with great outside perspective.
You can hire on single PA’s or a PA Team to help out with all project work, whether you’re in Preproduction, Production, or Postproduction.
Single members of the Art Department include the Production Designer, the Art Director, Prop Managers & Designers, Construction Grips, and Art PAs.
GRIP AND ELECTRIC
Single members of the Grip and Electric Department include Gaffers, Electrics, Key Grips, Grips, and Swings. It is essential that a Grip and Electric crew works not just efficiently but most importantly safely.
Per camera you can bring on a 1st Assistant Cameraperson and 2nd Assistant Cameraperson, and even a Camera Trainee (Camera PA) if you like.
If you are looking for a Director of Photography, we can find one for you based on your style and work habits.
Script Supervisors control continuity and take essential notes for Postproduction. Let us find you someone who will do their job well without hindering the flow of production.
Assistant Directors control time and run the set during Production. You can bring someone on at any stage of Preproduction, and we can build you a team based on the size of your set.
Recording clean dialogue is the number one responsibility of the production sound department. Failing to do so may cause you major issues in Postproduction and may even force you to ADR lines.
HAIR AND MAKEUP
A good hair and/or makeup artist is essential to letting your actors shine on camera, and look their absolute best, without being dependent on lighting conditions or other circumstances.
We're just not going to explain this one. Yes, we can find you a director that is fit for your project. We really hope you know what a director does.
You can find a full list of Postproduction sub-departments under the Postproduction services tab. Any Postproduction crew member can be hired individually, including but not limited to editors, visual effects and motion graphics artists, post sound editors and designers, colorists, and composers.
