Verizon User Experience: Managing a Film Crew with a Bluetooth Headset

Making a movie is all about roles, not only for the actors on screen, but also for the entire crew working on set.

One of the many roles of the unit production manager is managing the entire staff of the film. From the set decorator to the production assistants to the costume designer and everyone in between, the unit production manager helps oversee the activity.

On set of an independent film, Allison Whitmer is that person. Her duties include being everywhere at all times, managing the on-set cast and crew members and making sure that the film production stays on schedule.

In short, she needs full control, and the Plantronics Voyager Legend Bluetooth® Headset gave her exactly that during her Verizon User Experience. By wearing the Bluetooth headset, Whitmer worked on scheduling, budgeting and payroll on her laptop, while speaking on the phone and sitting within earshot of the set.

In filmmaking, seconds wasted means money lost. The pressure is always on to make things run smoothly, and having a handsfree mode of communication made it possible for Whitmer to multitask while staying connected. She quickly made and took calls with the touch of a button. “It was so comfortable and easy to use,” Whitmer said.

And not only did all of the functions of the headset come in handy, the look of the accessory offered a boost, too. Cast and crew noted the powerful visual signal her Bluetooth headset offered.

“Usually, I am not a fan of a headset or earpieces. This one, I was. It gave me an air of ‘official enterprise,’” Whitmer laughed, “but seriously, it really worked to my advantage in every way.”
