So my understanding is, maybe I've been WAY wrong, that in entertainment/production an Electrician is synonymous with "The lighting guy". (Or "The guy that's never around when you need him".) Which can cause confusion at times. I just called a large concert venue in Philly, as I have been poking around, thinking about things for this summer if my main plan falls through. It took me awhile to even get a number for this place, I finally got a number, spoke to a real person, and had a conversation with a woman who seemed pretty obnoxious / high-on-herself. I asked if it would be possible for me to get in contact with either human resources or their ME (master electrician). She then went on to say something to the effect of: "Electrician? We don't have one on the payroll. Like we have a contract with a company." (So now I'm thinking, okay, IATSE contract, or something like that.) "Oh really, so--" "Like, so, what are you trying to do?" "I'm trying to get in contact with human resources or master electrician to discuss the possibility of internship or employment." "What do you want? Those are two diff'rent things. Like if we have a problem with our power we call someone, we don't like have an electrician around. We have like sound and lighting guys though." "Oh, right, sorry. In entertainment production a 'lighting guy' is referred to as an electrician, so--" "Um, electrician? No, okay that's totally different that's not even right." "Oh okay, well can I get in contact with your 'lighting guy' for an internship--" "We don't like do internships in this building. The internships are like during the summer, and like for like when we book like administrative stuff, not like stuff in the building." "Oh, okay... nevermind. Bye."
