"How many Trainees does it take...

We snapped this picture while I was working on Season 13 of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. In this crew alone were four generations of Trainees in vastly different roles on the show ranging from the creative to the administrative all the way down to the coffee getting variety. I have been fortunate to learn from Writer/1st AD, Stuart Feldman, Director/Producer, Mike Smith & 2nd AD, Michelle Regina. It just goes to show that there are endless possibilities once you finish the program."
