The Montana Film Office is currently updating our database of EXPERIENCED set designers, set propmakers, finish carpenters, and master painters. Thorough knowledge of industry standard set construction techniques is an ABSOLUTE must. Please register or update your current crew listing in our Reel Scout database. List build credits, job titles, and film/project worked on and year. Resumes containing your additional experience may also be uploaded into your profile. Carpenters & painters with exceptional finish and interior specialty skills are also asked to update or create new profiles within the database. All new profiles & updates will be reviewed and verified. Finish carpenters & master painters with experience in local high-end & specialty shops (I.E. ‘Yellowstone Traditions’, ‘OSM’, and other ultra fine-craft oriented shops) may potentially qualify as on-set finish propmakers & master painters, without necessarily working on a previous film or television project. The waiving of such requirements will be at the discretion of the hiring entities.
We are compiling this workforce referral information for a number of projects that are considering Montana for multi-episode TV series, and film projects. There has been an emphasis placed on the need for traditional, frontiersman, 1880’s western, and ranch styles of construction, finish craftsmanship, and period painting skills.
Please feel free to email the Montana Film Office with any additional questions, however, DO NOT email resumes & updates for your crew listing to the office. Crew listings and updates may only be submitted through the Reel Scout database.
Updates & new profiles may be created by following the link tab button “CREW & SERVICES” and then ‘Crew & Services’ in the pop-up menu. Select ‘register’ to create a new profile, or ‘login’ to edit & update your existing listing.
The Montana Film Office maintains the crew referral database as a means for producers, keys & department heads, to contact would-be employees for potential employment on film & television projects. The Montana Film Office does not hire nor place employees on projects; nor does it function as/or in lieu of your local hiring hall, job rep, or any other agency. The database is maintained as a courtesy for projects seeking to hire local Montanans, utilize their valuable skills, and contribute to the overall economic health of our Montana communities.
