Job V ISO: How to Hire Film Crew and Find Props
ArtCube Job Posts v ISO Posts
Choosing the right form when you want to hire film crew, or offer Art Department jobs is critical to our and your trust within the film industry.
Our platform is dedicated to providing the best experience for job seekers and film industry employers. By using the appropriate forms and providing complete information, you can maximize your chances of successful collaborations within our community.
Three Reasons the Job Form Matters
1. Transparency + Fair Hiring
Job Details Allow Informed Decisions
A job posted with fully disclosed details allows informed decisions.
Jobs posted with fully disclosed details promote accountability.
The form includes essential details, minimizing back-and-forth communication and ensuring transparency in hiring.
Rates must be posted to prevent any ambiguity or unfair practices.
We provide “wiggle room” with ‘negotiable’ and ‘flexible’ checkboxes.
2. Some Art Dpartment Crew Opt Out of Market Notifications.
You may not reach all qualified candidates.
- Some Cubers exclusively search for work and aren’t interested in the Market.
- We split it up in 4.0 It’s overwhelming if you are not a set decorator or a set dec shopper by trade.
3. It mucks up Community Metrics
- Come February 2024 we will have one year amassed of crew rates, job positions, job types, and divided union film jobs and non-union, etc. Granted, 2023 is the worst year ever, so 2024 rates should be interesting to compare.
- Crew jobs by season, national holiday, or city-specific events.
A Word from the Wise
Understanding the MARKET's ISO Posts:
- A signal to Vendors and Cubers you need help finding A THING, be it set dressing, raw material, prop, or particular oddity.
- Commonly on weekends, after delivery fails, last-minute urgent requests, or a dearth of inventory.… like Disco Balls during Pride Month!
ISO is NOT...
A workaround due to insufficient art department crew job details or low/illegal rates.
A search engine. Remember, you are asking a human community of experienced professionals, proceed with your reputation in mind.
