    It has been a long time in the Members' wish list that the Crew Directory has an online presence. Well here it is, understated and functional yes, but contains the contact details of all of our members to help with crewing and contacting contemporaries.

    There is also a smart phone app available for members to keep contacts close at hand. Member logins will be distributed soon and will allow individuals the ability to keep their details up to date.

    Look for the icon in your app store

     or search for the Wild Apricot Member App.


    The app is not essential as the browser based directory has been designed to make navigation simple in a phone but it will allow direct access to your own personal details. To avoid email harvesting, only members who login can see other member email addresses. However a direct messaging option is available via any profile page which will send a message without disclosing the recipient's email address. 

    You do not need to login to the site to access the directory, it is public domain like the printed directory.

    GBCT CREW DIRECTORY

    Due to the extraordinary events and pandemic that has changed everything we know to be ‘normal’ this past year, we have not been able to update our printed Crew Directory.  We hope to be able to do this either in print or online in due course.  In the meantime, if you need to check whether an individual is, or has been, a member, please contact us by telephone – 020 8813 1999 – or email – [email protected] – and we will respond as soon as possible.

    We are again very lucky to have some of the best camera trainees in the business!  Once again, due to the delays caused by Covid-19, some of our trainees have very kindly agreed to continue working as trainees until the new intake is ready to take over from them.  Remember, they are film trained but capable of bringing themselves up to speed quickly.  Attached is the list – please note that some are already successfully working as loaders on digital high-end television dramas or features, so just phone and ask them if they are available to work as trainees.

    Going forward

    After going through the application and interview processes we had to delay starting the trainee course because of – you’ve guessed – Covid.  We very much hope to start the course within the next few months and then it will be all go!  More info as soon as possible.

    If you'd like to participate in this collective idea let us know and we will hand you our account for a week or two! We've had a few of our members take over posting exciting and interesting pictures and stories, we would love to hear more! At the moment, it’s wonderful to have Drew Marsden helping us.
