On big budget features, the department is run by the Transport Coordinator who oversees the entire transportation requirements for the film. He or she employs one or more Transport Managers to manage the use of the support vehicles, as well as the trucks and vans used to transport equipment. Transport Coordinators also appoint Transport Captains to take charge of the travel arrangements of cast and crew. Transport Captains ensure that people are picked up at the right place, and delivered to the set on time, by private cars, mini-buses or coaches. Smaller budget films may only employ the services of one Transport Captain, who ensures that cast and crew arrive on time.
I am currently a student at Longwood University, where I am studying Communication Studies with a concentration in Organizational Communication and Public Relations. I will be graduating in May 2011 and am looking for a job in the motion picture industry. Specifically, I would like to work in the transportation department as either a dispatcher or transportation coordinator. I have already held a job as a dispatcher for the Lakeshore Production movie One for the Money. During this movie, I worked for closely with the transportation coordinator and learned a lot about what the job entails.Through my work experience and education, I have developed exceptional communication and organizational skills that will make me a valuable asset to your company.
