Ben Halula
Production Director

My name is Ben Halula and I’m the Production Director. This is my second year working for TigerPaw and I have enjoyed every second of it. I love working on Production crews because we get to watch the building transform from nothing but a stage, to a full blown concert with thousands of people, back to a basketball court, and we’re involved every step of the way. It is a very unique opportunity that not many people get the chance to experience in a lifetime, and we do it on a regular basis. On top of that, the hours are flexible and we get paid to do it. It has by far, been one of the best experiences I've had at Clemson and life in general.

Fun Facts
  • Production crews are a great way to learn many technical skills involving lights, sound, and video.
  • Are you good at trouble shooting and solving problems? If so, then you are the perfect fir for Production crews. Each event we work requires new equipment, thusly a new setup, and often a few problems that need to be solved.
  • Only on Production crews do you have the opportunity to start working bright and early one day, and finish the next!
  • Production crews offer a unique experience: interacting with roadies. Roadies are the people that travel with the band and run the concert day in and day out. This means that they are well seasoned in the concert industry and have their fair share of stories to pass along.

Production

The production crew is an excellent way to break into the technical side of the concert industry. It is our job to work with the road crew for any given concert to unload trucks, setup equipment and help the concert run smoothly and efficiently. If you have a sharp mind, this is the crew for you as each event is a new experience with new people, ideas, and equipment to get acquainted with. Production crews can be long and are non-stop action giving one a rewarding experience at the end of the day.
