Extra help

Hi,

What do other SPC's do when you need an extra pair of hands for a job? I mean more of an assistant to help setup, move things and generally help (not a second shooter or sound guy)?

I don't want to go down the route of hiring someone permanently as I can't justify the cost yet.
Do you have a list of freelancers that you can call on?
Thanks
Rob

Re: Extra help

I have a few friends I can trust and pay. For me, a person who knows how I work is important. That they know how I work means the can jump in on things when I'm working on another aspect because they know what I'd want/need from them without explanation.

Re: Extra help

It's all about networking. I need to make this site easier to do that. We have a lot of DVi members in the UK.

Re: Extra help

Thanks Chris & Craig,

I agree networking is the key and works well for 2nd shooters, audio, voice overs and graphics. The bit I am struggling with is best described as a 'runner' but that is only needed for about 35% of my work. Friends and family are great to help at last minute but they often have their own jobs/ commitments. I guess like Craig says having someone who knows how you work and just gets on would be great!
