Hey,
I live about 40 mins. away from Boston and was looking into working for a union (grip or electric). I was hoping that people had some information on where I can look, or at least get me going in the right direction. If anyone knows of some unions in the New England area that would be great!

IATSE does all the major film work in the US. And they do have local in Boston that covers most of New England.

Boston is covered by IA Local 481 Studio Mechanics. I know it's very busy there right now. I'm starting a movie there next month and I hear it's so busy they're having problems staffing up locally. If you type IATSE 481 into a search engine it'll show how to contact them.

Hi Matt,
Thanks for reading. I'm told that a NY Key Grip named Stan Nilson invented them and he's looking for a company to manufacture them. His website is nilsongear.com.
