    Hi everyone! I'm currently a student taking a class for a User Experience certificate. The project I'm currently working on is within the entertainment industry, I'm researching the whole process of film production. If you're a trucker in the entertainment industry, could you answer some of these questions?

    What does the job entail?
    Who do you receive instructions from or who do you report to?


    Scenario:
    You’re instructed to park on a lot on a certain day, what would that process usually be like?
    How would you know where to go and where to park?
    Would you be provided a map beforehand? If so, how?


    Thank you in advance for your responses!

    Worked with a lady who's husband drove for ABC sports. Come super-bowl the drivers were getting the crowd shots while the pros worked the game.
