Gerber Knife Comments:
My name is Chenting and I'm a freelance film and video producer from New York City. Over the past year, I was able to get to where I am now in my career, surprisingly, through my dad's Winchester folding knife!
Fresh out of film school, I was struggling to find connections and jobs where I can develop the skills and experience I needed to become a director of photography. Here and there, I was able to find some production assistant jobs. It was a start, but I needed to prove to the higher-ups that I was capable of doing what they did professionally, in order to move forward to reach my career goals.
In the field of film and TV production, you have to be quick and flexible - able to improvise on the field. Hanging lights off ceilings, and rigging microphones and sound equipment in strange locations are some of the things that film crews do. However, production assistants are usually not trusted enough to do those things. They typically handle paperwork, pick-up food orders and drive the crew around - the bottom of the food-chain.
During one production, there was my big break. That morning before I left for work, it just so happened that I left my dad's knife in my cargo pant pocket from the day prior (I was using it to cut stuff at my apartment). During the shoot, the director of photography was rigging a light on the ceiling of an office building. Short on hands and short on time, he desperately needed a tool for cutting twine. But unfortunately (or fortunately for me) he left his tools in his van, which was parked in a lot far, far away.
I quickly handed him my folding knife from my pocket as he was on top of a ladder with the light. Surprised and grateful, he finished rigging the lights for that particular shot, and after the whole shoot, he thanked me again and took my number down. On the next job, I was the one rigging the lights for the director of photography. And from then on, I've moved forward smoothly in the film and video world.
