Who Are The Members Of Local 487?
You have seen our work: in movie theaters, on television, streaming services and even commercials. We are the women and men who help make movies and television shows. We are Grips, Electricians, Medics, Greenskeepers and Teleprompter Operators.
We do Set Construction, Costumes, Sound, Craft Service, Props, Special Effects and Set Dressing.
Some of us took a direct route to our dream job. Others tried different careers before discovering this vocation. The work is challenging and the hours are long, but for the right individual the satisfaction is great.
We are freelancers who have banded together to help each other. The more of us who unite, the better off we will be, individually and collectively. We are here to protect each other, and to improve the lives of ourselves, our friends and our families.
