Jordan Schmidt has been working in the film industry since 1999 and has been a Teamster and Location Manager for over ten years.

He currently wrapped the CBS Television series Extant starring Halle Berry. With plans to travel and work out of state, Schmidt joined the LMGI with the hopes of spreading the message of what the organization stands for across the globe. Being on the Board of Directors will help facilitate this goal. Schmidt believes it’s time to raise the bar as far as awareness about what location professionals do and how critical their job is in the creative process of making a movie, television show or a commercial. Without the location manager, everything would end up on a sound stage. Going out into the real world opens up the look of the show, and requires logistics that take years of experience to run smoothly.
