I am the TD for a high school and a Producer for a church (like a sub TD).
My crew at the school is divided into 3 teams (middle, Jr, and Sr high school) for each of the 3 weekly assemblies. I have repeatedly recieved complaints from the more responsible members that others were doing nothing but sleep or play gameboy in the booth forcing others to work double time. However, when I speak to the problem tech, he professes inocence. I am only able to observe one team each month. How should i deal with this?
Also how is a producer to deal with kids who think they're on the tech staff (but have been kicked off or are not on duty) that have developed "selective hearing"?
Basically I'm looking for suggestions on dealing with unruly young technicians.
