Lights.... Camera.... Quite on the Set.... ACTION!!!
Since 2008, many of STARR's Medical and Water Rescue Specialist have been involved in Occupational and Marine Safety for the Television / Motion Picture Industry. STARR members working through the local International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE 478) have been able to provide high quality Health, Safety, and Medical personnel to both the construction workers building the Theatrical Props and Actors during the actual shooting of the production. Furthermore, members of STARR have worked with various actors and Marine Coordinators to ensure Marine Safety in, on, and around all types of bodies of water whether natural or man-made. This has allowed many of our members to work very closely with Directors, Producers, Unit Production Managers, and many Production Coordinators.
In addition, our members have a great relationship with various local and national Stunt Coordinators to establish and maintain a high degree of safety for both crews and actors when performing a wide range of stunts. Of course, these stunts require accurate and conscientious planning and preparation, an understanding of equipment, as well as first rate medical professionals that are able to adapt to the continuous changing theatrical atmosphere.
Our dedicated and highly professional members of STARR have provided water safety as Rescue Divers, Utility Divers, Boat Operators, and other assort roles all to ensure the production moves forward in a timely but safe manner.
