How Sean Started in Film Industry
In early 80’s while still a High School student and an interest in Film, I stated my Senior studies in the Radio and Television Dept. Making films during college only furthered my appetite for the biz. Worked a staff job for a year or so setting up large Audio Visual shows then setting out to start my Freelance career for a couple years doing a brief stint in the Rock and Roll industry but always pursuing my interests in the film business. Shooting, Grip and Lighting I couldn’t get enough of and I set out to start exclusively in the Film Business. In the mid-80’s I working at G&E Rental Shops here in Michigan and Hollywood to make ends meet and learn to repair/operate the gear when I wasn’t day playing on sets. Got a chance to work for a very cool Film production company where we shot a lot of miniatures, built sets, shot music videos and did higher end commercials and some pilot TV work, primaly on Film and that cemented my path. I started with a van package and the business grew from there. I got accepted into the IATSE Stagehands Local 38 in 1995 and in 2001 I was accepted into IATSE Local 600 as a Director Of Photography.
