Also might want to stick something about OSHA or something next to "Aerial Lift and Fall Protection" Certified" if that applies to you. That's what I did on my resume... I think it makes it sound more professional, or legit. (ie, certified by who?).
"Picture Car Rigging. Funded by NM Film Office" is a little vague to me... but that just might be because I'm all the way in New York and have no idea what there is in NM. Is this a course? A class? A 5-hour session, or a 4 month training? Something that you took? Something that you taught? Is there certification for it? An exam? I might just be a little naive on this issue, but I've found it helps to be as specific as possible, especially in an industry which takes you all over the country/world, where people may not know what exactly the NM Film Office offers.
Other than that, looks pretty good.
I'd like to ask a general question: what do people think about putting the production companies on their resumes? Steven has done it, and it looks good, but I personally don't do it on mine, and was considering it. What do you include?
