What does a Construction Manager do? A construction manager looks after the building of a set, hiring the necessary crew, carpenters, painters, plasterers and joiners. They work alongside the Production Designer to work out how to build a safe set and are responsible for getting the necessary materials and tools needed for the construction.
You will work under the Construction Manager in teams to build a real film set for a short Sci-Fi Film.
