Episode 15-April Laird
This week on Hold the Drama, host Alison Robertson, sits down with April Laird. April has been working in the prop department on various productions since 2007. Talking with her only drove home what a collaborative effort it is to create film and TV. She has such pride in what she does and it really comes through when she talks about some of the other amazing prop masters she has had the pleasure to work with. This is an often-overlooked job in this industry, but what they provide to a production is so important. We feel lucky to get to sit down and talk with an experienced on set art department worker and even luckier that we get to share the conversation with you. Enjoy!
