Meet Christopher Danger Mendrala // Sound Utility / Boom Op
Danger was born in Savannah, GA where he developed an interest in film production in high school making video projects and also working on some SCAD productions. After school he was aimlessly traveling the country, working odd jobs and being generally awesome, when he answered a craigslist ad for a Production Assistant gig on Extreme Makeover (people edition) in the Midwest. From then on he took every Production Assistant gig he could find. Danger has worked on many productions in a variety of positions and was eventually able to join IATSE 491 where he currently works in the Sound Department.
A PROUD MOMENT
I once made Miley Cyrus a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and she loved it!
Once as a Production Assistant, I was also given the responsibility of being the hedgehog wrangler and I accidentally dropped the hedgehog in front of everyone right before we were about to shoot the scene, the room was quiet and it was a loud thud. It was very embarrassing. The hedgehog was ok.
