Gang Boss

The gang boss is the sergeant of the construction crew. Also known as the pusher, the gang boss organizes the crews. On a bigbudget film, where there may be more than one stage working at any given moment, there will be a gang boss on each stage, covering each set. This is their world, and they are in charge when it comes to the construction teams. The gang boss is there to answer questions and make snap decisions.

In the case of the extra doorway, the gang boss had to make the decisions on materials and colors for walls that no one had designed. If there's time, the boss will consult with superiors—the art director or the construction coordinator—but mostly, the prompt decisions are made solo.
