SNL - "Come Back Barack"
For the Thanksgiving episode of Season 43, host Chance the Rapper got together with cast members Chris Redd and Kenan Thompson to give thanks for times gone by.
With less than 48 hours to construct the entire set, including a water effects rig (and a request to heat the 10,000 gallons in late November), I managed several alternating construction and effects crews as well as retaining all relevant permitting from the NYC Mayor's Office for Film and Television. I also managed talent scheduling between our shoot and the other two projects that Chance was booked in.
This shoot required the most permitting for a single project in my work experience, as well as providing on-set support for a high-profile celebrity, and the scheduling of a dedicated strike day.
