Hello, I am the production lead at a large ministry organization. We have only recently grown to require a full production staff and are running into some organizational 'tugging' as we grow and develop this new area of ministry.
We presently have a worship staffer that is responsible for the spiritual aspects of the programs that works side by side with the production lead. This is working very well.
The area that is not always performing to its best is the Technical side of the production of the programs.. both weekly and special services so to speak.
We usually have at any service:
Production person ( responsible for setting prod logistics, cues, running rehearsals, ensureing audio balance, lighing scenes, media operations etc and video shots.. bascially overall program design and operation) This person usually manages everything till curtain time and then eacy area below operates itself and Prod person is basically on headset and quite unless needed for missed cue or crisis managment)
lighting designer(runs board sets light scenes etc
Video Crew( Video Director, TD- runs video switch board, camera operators)
Media Designer - Runs Media programs
Audio Engineer - Sets mics, Runs board ( plus 2cnd audio engineer for assistance)
While this works fairly well it has not been formalized from the ministry leadership and has evolved by need... We are trying to place a formal chain of command and decision point on all of the above with formal job titles.. Should they all be directors reporting to
production manager or ? Any suggestions and all help would be graciously accepted .. including any job descriptions etc.. THANK YOU,
