Don Smith's TV & Film Production Crew
and Art Department Resume

This Online TV & Film Production Crew and Art Department Resume is a summation of my experience in the television and film industry; it represents a range of positions from Grip to Greensman but the greatest majority would be in the art department where I was usually a set dresser or the on-set dresser.

I actually began my illustrious film making career in television when I decided to kick up my interest in music and video up a notch and received a Associates Degree in Television Production. After that I worked in TV and Video in Spokane Washington and Seattle. While working in the Television and Video Field in Seattle I landed my first memorable job on a feature film "Seven Hours to Judgment" and was bit by the film bug.

Suffering from film fever I had no choice but to pack up my stuff and head to the Movie Capital of the World, Hollywood! The Southern California Film Industry is the most competitive in the world and I had to beg with hundreds of people and even offer to work for free but finally landed my first film job in Southern California. Like many people in the business I started out with Music Videos, my first "Rock Steady" by the Whispers where like most of my career in the film industry I did art department work. The production of Music Videos involves long hours and relatively low pay but I was doing what I loved and satisfying my need to be creative and it also provided a great opportunity to meet and work with some great artists in both music and film. Some of the most notable musicians I worked with are Bruce Springsteen, Dion Warwick, Los Lobos, Eddie Money, Belinda Carlisle, Vanessa Williams, Bette Midler, Morris Day, Jasmine Guy, Bobby Brown, Cypress Hill and Roy Orbison.

Production of TV commercials is one step up from Music Video production the hours and working conditions are usually much better and the pay can be great. Some of the most notable company's that I have helped create TV commercials for are: Matelle Toys, Gatoraide, Pepsi-Cola, Levis, Lipton Ice Tea, and Sony Electronics to name a few.

I have also worked on a lot of other made for TV productions like after school specials and series pilots and even one soap opera. My most memorable made for TV production was when I worked for Tom Hanks on his 1992 TV directorial debut, "None But the Lonely Heart" episode of HBO's "Tales From the Crypt" series. I would place Tom Hanks at the top of my list of most excellent people in Hollywood to work with and Whoopi Goldberg second. Some of the other noteworthy I worked with in the film production industry are in no particular order: Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Jack Lammon, Betty White, Beau Bridges, William Baldwin, Sherilyn Fenn, Juliette Lewis, Julliet Lewis, Dudley Moore, David Duchovny, Chuck Norris, Pat Morita, Reese Witherspoon, Jefery Levy, Jake Busey, Stephen Dorff, Dylan McDermott, Nancy Travis, James LeGros, Quentin Tarantino, Nicolas Cage, Shaquille O'Neal....

My first feature film job in the Southern California Film Industry was "Vietnam Texas" which was followed by many other feature films: "The Nutt House" (The Nutty Nut), "Bride of Re-Animator sets", "Bride of Re-Animator movie", "12:01", " Red Rock West" sets, "Red Rock West" movie, "thee of hearts", "Blood in Blood Out" (Vatos Locos), "Destiny Turns On the Radio", " Framed", "Hellbound", "House Party 3", "Howling IV", "Adventures of the Young Indiana Jones, Hollywood Follies", "Kalifornia", "Phantasm II", "The Public Eye", " S.F.W. ", "Posse", "Timemaster" and "Weekend in the Country".

The majority of my work in feature films was with the art department. Although I worked in various other positions I did a lot of set dressing and my preferred position was on-set dresser.

So thanks for stopping by my Film Production Art Department Crew Resume, I hope you find something interesting and useful here.
