Gun Awareness for General Crew in Woburn, MA | Local 481

This seminar will be led by Larry Zanoff, one of the managers of the Weapons Department for Independent Studio Services, and is designed to be a general awareness class for members from all crafts. It will focus on on-set safety when prop guns are present. The purpose is to help members be aware of the protocols and help maintain a safe, informed set when guns are being utilized. This is not a "how-to" class on handling guns.

  • Background on prop weapons used on set
  • On-set professionalism and proper etiquette when weapons are on set
  • Safety rules, regulations, and protocols
  • Legalities, licenses, and permits
  • Types of blanks, different loads of blanks, and their appropriate use
