11. On Track and Under Budget - Denny Rubianes, Production Supervisor
“I’m like a wedding planner for commercials,” says our guest Denny Rubianes. He’s a production supervisor who has worked with national brands like Sony, Nike, Peloton, ALL the car brands you can imagine, and household name talent — including Michelle Obama, Brittany Spears, Jay Z, and Jeff Bridges, just to name a few. Today on the show, we dive deep into how production supervisors lead the crew, deal with vendors, manage all the logistics of a shoot, and keep each department on track and under budget. Denny also shares his wisdom on how to navigate relationships with producers, directors, and the accounting department, with essential advice about production manuals and how to manage stress on the job.
