Hmm... I would change "Film Production Credits" to read something like "Narrative Production Credits" since today the term "Film" is so ambiguous. It would help to cover everything in that section, since you have things that are both features and shorts as well as both digital and film (the media). And that distinguishes it from the commercials in the next section.

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?

I'd edit out the number of days that you worked on something. It's like you're worried someone will catch you trying to inflate your credits, when the fact is we're all too busy inflating our own credits to try to catch you! We're all "daily employees." If you get to an interview, then you can say you were a day-player ...
