BLK&Ginger is a collection of production designers and fabricators who work nonunion and union, low budgets and high budgets, high profile and low profile productions. We are a nonstop shop; from production design to graphic design to set and prop fabrication. Each crew member is a designer and fabricator in their own right and since we work as a collective we benefit through each individual's distinctive set of skills and taste. Each production brought in is led by the designer whose styles and sensibilities best match the project. From there the rest of the BLK&Ginger crew take on positions in the department to best fit their individual talents and project needs.
BLK&Ginger also operates as a loan out company allowing us to provide our crew members with benefits and a stable work climate in this fast pace, unpredictable world of film and media production. 71% of our staff are women and we aim to always keep our diversity in high marks
BLK&GINGER WAS STARTED IN 2014 BY CARLY JO LARSON AND JOHN H. ADAMS. THE TWO FIRST MET ON A FILM PRODUCTION (BEFORE THE BORDER) IN THEIR HOME STATE OF PA. CARLY WAS WORKING AS A LOCATIONS MANAGER AND JOHN H. ADAMS AS A PRODUCERS ASSISTANT. "WE FOUND OUT WE HAD A LOT IN COMMON. AFTER ONE PRODUCTION WE KNEW WE WOULD BE WORKING TOGETHER FOR A LIFETIME" CARLY SAID. ONCE THEY GOT BACK TO LA IT CAME TOGETHER QUITE NATURALLY AND BLK&GINGER HAD ITS OWN WORKSHOP JUST ONE YEAR LATER.
BLK&GINGER'S ART DEPARTMENT HOUSE COMES FROM A TRADITIONAL CONCEPT. "WE WORK AS A COMMUNITY" JOHN SAYS. THEY UPHOLD QUALITY AND STANDARDS WHILE SERVICING AN ARRAY OF DIFFERENT CLIENTELE - FROM INDIE FEATURES TO INTERNATIONAL AD CAMPAIGNS. ALL THE MEANWHILE THEY KEEP IT FUN AND CREATIVE. "THIS BUILDING CONSTANTLY CHANGES! IF WERE NOT DESIGNING A SHOOT OR EXECUTING A BUILD WERE RESTYLING ONE OF THE ROOMS IN OUR BUILDING!" SAYS CARLY.
BLK&GINGER NOW HAS A NUMBER OF CREW MEMBERS WHO SERVE AS ART DEPARTMENT CREW, SCENIC DESIGN, PROP FABRICATION AND CONSTRUCTION.
