MEET RICKY TYREE
Instructor: Location Assistant, Networking 101
My first full-time opportunity came in 2017 for a Netflix show ‘The Haunting Of Hill House’ as a location assistant. Since then, I’ve worked on productions such as Doctor Sleep, Raising Dion, The Outsider, Dynasty, Bad Boys For Life, P-Valley, Blast Beat, and more (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5512627/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0 ).
Since the pandemic started, I joined the health and safety department for Marvel Studios until getting promoted to Site Supervisor for multiple productions such as ‘The Falcon & Winter Soldier, ‘Loki’, ‘Hawkeye, and ‘Mrs.Marvel.’ I’ve taken courses at Miles College, UCLA, Emory, and Sundance Film Festival for producing, writing, and directing.
