Employment / SM Portfolio?
« on: Oct 28, 2007, 03:35 pm »
I'm currently taking a portfolio class.  We're getting ready for the 'real world'.  My teacher (who is a designer) told me that my portfolio for SM should contain pictures, and that's about it. 

He says if I'm being interviewed as a stage manager, they are just going to assume that I know how to notate blocking, schedule, and such things.  I'm not sure I agree with him.  My work happens in my prompt book.  Even if I'm horrible at my paperwork and notation (which I hope I'm not  ;) ) the play could still look good.  And besides... what kind of pictures would a stage manager put in a portfolio?  I'm fairly confused at this.  I have interviewed for positions before, and I've always had a prompt book at the ready. 

So.  I suppose the real questions I'm asking are these... what is in your portfolio?  Do you even have a portfolio?  Do you use your best prompt book as your portfolio?  Any help on this subject would be appreciated.
