CONSULTING & MORE
The company provides pre-production consulting services to production companies with projects involving minors. With knowledge of the intricacies of labor law and acting union requirements relating to minors, in conjunction with the on-set teachers, we have helped save productions money and staff time hours due to our consulting. There are many potential challenges that could arise during filming/taping/stage rehearsal. Our consultation services help production companies avoid costly production delays and subsequent management and cast frustration.
Given our industry experience spanning over a quarter century, our clients have also come to us for seeking special services, because our abundance of resources affords us the ability to extend beyond our core services and jump in to help producers and directors solve their pressing issues. Some of the services we have provided include obtaining an American Sign Language coach for Tatum O’Neal and Denis Leary for their work on an episode of “Rescue Me” and offering a French dialect coach to David Duchovny on the set of his directorial debut film House of D. We have also assisted Radio City Music Hall with the identification of a pool of local child dancers for their various productions of The Radio City Christmas Spectacular.
