Are you a woman interested in MessyWorks, but not quite comfortable being in front of the camera or getting messy? Think that there is not a place in MessyWorks for women like you?
If the above describes you, MessyWorks is here to assure you that there IS a place for you even if you don't want to be on camera. Like any production, be it stage or screen, the performers are only one part of the whole. There are plenty of openings for women who are interested in being a part of MessyWorks without appearing in front of the camera in Pie In The Face Productions.
Pie In The Face Productions is the Official Production Company of MessyWorks, and all crew members in MessyWorks would be assigned to work with PITFP.
Of course, just because you don't HAVE to get messy to do these jobs doesn't mean you CAN'T! If you want to do your job AND appear on camera occasionally, feel free to mention it! We're considering making a tape of just our crew members participating in some messyfun!
Here are a few available openings behind the camera in MessyWorks, along with a brief description of some of the responsibilities under the job, but check back often, because as we grow we are always looking to add personnel. As with the rest of MessyWorks, you don't have to be in Chicago to be part of our family and we request that only women apply for these positions.
