As the UPM I was helping run the set. It was a very small crew and everyone worked in tandem in order to be able to get all the shots within a very short time frame.

In this specific case I prepared the meals myself and brought them unto the set for the crew to have their lunch/ dinner.

Second Assistant Director (Grip) The Walk: A Christmas Story

Film (Short) — Full Sail University Productions Details
11/15 – 2/16

I started out as a grip, but due to unforeseen circumstances I was promoted to the Second Assistant Director position. As the 2nd AD I was in charge of completing Call Sheets for each day of production, and ensuring they were sent out via email to the entire cast and crew each night after wrap and ensure that there were physical copies available for the crew each morning prior to load out. I was also in charge of talent making to and from set on time. For this specific production we had child actors on set, so It was very important to ensure their safety and coordinate for them to be able to do homework and complete academic work while they were on break from shooting. During production I would gather the actors and take them to the green room for make-up and hair, would ensure they got their meals on time, and would answer any question regarding the production that they had.
