BMG Provides Production Staffing Support for Edelman

Broadcast Management Group recently provided production staffing support for national marketing and PR firm, Edelman. The multi-day, multi-city event was to support Edelman’s client, Dupont, for their “Tiny Home” activation. As the name suggests, the event showcased a tiny house that was fabricated and finished using largely Dupont products. The home was delivered to multiple cities, where our crews were responsible for re-constructing the home, then striking and packing it up the following day.

The first two stops for the activation were Atlanta, GA and Troutman, NC – just outside Charlotte. In each city, Edelman was seeking 3-person production staff consisting of a Scenic Carpenter and two Stagehands to support the build-out and strike. Our production staffing team was awarded the contract only 6 days before the first event stop in Atlanta, so we had to move quickly. We combed our database and contacted qualified freelancers in both Atlanta and Charlotte. Once we identified potential talent, we conducted phone interviews with each person to review the scope of the project and ensure they had a clear understanding of their role and the goals and objectives of the event.

For the Tiny Home project, having an event management background helped us in crewing the project, as we knew what skill sets to look for and where to find talent. If you’re in need of production staffing services for an upcoming project, we’d be happy to help.

    I appreciate the tips on hiring a production staffing company to have more time to focus on the creative aspects of the project. Hiring a production crew is a tedious task, and can take up much of your time. We're currently working on a huge production, and I'll share this article with my boss so he'll consider on delegating the recruitment to a staffing company. I like that you mentioned that staffing company can ensure to have the right team onboard for the project. Thanks!

    Interesting blog post Andrew. For those who are nearly ready to cut the cord, but still want access to key channels such as ESPN, I'd recommend checking out Dish Network's new service, Sling TV. It provides access to a handful of channels for $20/month.https://gigaom.com/2015/01/15/sling-tv-details-price-devices-networks-resolution-bandwidth/

    Go for it! I'll admit that I was a little apprehensive about pulling the plug at first, but honestly, the transition away from DirecTV has been seamless. The only missing link is live sports, but there are a few work arounds depending on what sports you watch. Good luck!

    While I am part of the 55 year old demographic that still has TV boxes and does TV viewing, I do my viewing using DVRs and networked PCs playing video files from an in-home server. I too have noticed that I view a handful of shows on a regular basis and have found various other sources for these shows. And now it has gotten to the point to where I am seriously considering ending my very long relationship with DirecTV and going streaming. Working in the TV industry also helped to open eyes to this as well. This transition from "old" TV is coming and the networks (Les Moonves, I am looking at you!) had better plan for it.

    You've left out a HUGE part of this story by not mentioning Howard Stern's effect on the Sharknado buzz! #siris-ly
