Hey everyone! I'm completing an application for a government contract & will need to hire for the lead positions to start.

High production value (demonstrated by use of cameras and specialized gear for dynamic fluid movement meeting the technical specifications in the Scope of Work, refer to Section III.C.2, Principal Photography).
