I interviewed Craig Parker for AUSXIP Interviews (just posted the interview here). Craig has been involved in four Rob Tapert productions and I asked what it was like working for Rob.
This is the 4th project you've worked on with Rob Tapert? What do you like about working on his projects?
Rob has enormous passion, knowledge and appreciation for all aspects of putting together a show and one feels this filter through all his projects. Together with a remarkable production team he assembles a fantastically skilled and talented crew who, even with the tiredness, difficulties and madness that come with a long shoot, continue to do beautiful work and treat each other with kindness and respect. He expects everyone to work at the top of their game, does all he can to encourage that and readily acknowledges it when they do.
