In addition to providing grip and lighting equipment, Shutterworks can help you find crew for your video or film projects in the Spokane area. We are well networked with contacts in all departments of professional production. We hand pick our crew to make sure they meet our values, personality and strict technical qualifications. Our rolodex includes camera operators, jib operators, sound mixers, gaffers, electricians, grips and more. Shutterworks can provide a gaffer or grip along with one of our grip truck packages or a camera operator complete with a 4K camera and cinema lenses. You can rest assured that any crew from Shutterworks will be reliable, fun yet professional and technically qualified.
Michael Notar, the manager of Shutterworks is an experienced camera operator and gaffer. He was formally trained at Brooks Institute of Photography where he built a solid foundation in photography, lighting and composition. He has operated on a variety of projects for Anheuser Busch, UFC, AbbVie Pharmaceuticals, American Family Insurance, ESPN 30 for 30 and Entertainment Tonight. Additionally, he has provided behind the scenes EPK footage for Z Nation (airing on SyFy) for all 5 seasons, as well as for several feature films. His strong background in lighting has also led to numerous jobs as a gaffer for HBO Sports, Beretta, Surefire, Sig Sauer, National Geographic, Merck, Modelo, PBS, CBS, DYI Network, Time Warner Cable and booking.com.
