"What's a Leadman?" you ask? A Leadman is responsible for hiring the Set Dressing crew and basically the rest adds up to what can be most accurately described as, "A glorified furniture mover". The job mostly entails coordinating the timely pick-up and delivery of the set dressing -- furnitiure, rugs, lamps, pictures, knick-knacks and any and every object you see on a movie set except the props that the actors handle. The Leadman also insures that the Set Decorators have enough Set Dressers to dress a set in the amount of time that production has seen fit to give us.
This leadman is making sure that materials and equipment are on the way. Leadmen have a lot of responsibilities when a repair, or new construction job is under way! They are the orchestrator of project, and see that everything is in place.
