ABOUT ME

Brad Lever | Greens Coordinator

A serial entrepreneur and dedicated husband and father I decided to broaden my horizons in 2015 when I traded in my suits for work boots

I joined the dynamic world of film and television production in beautiful Vancouver, BC, working my way tenaciously to Department Coordinator.


A proud member of the IATSE Union, local 891, I am a hard worker, creative, industrious, and innately fiscally responsible. 

I have a vast network of suppliers and tradespeople, as well as exclusive relationships with forestry companies and Squamish Nation which provide me unmatched sanctioned access to ethically gather a wide range of vegetation, large and small.

My kit is extensive, my truck is a mountain goat, and my drive to succeed propels me to execute your creative vision to the highest levels of quality.

TESTIMONIALS

I've had the pleasure and privilege of working with some of the industry's most creative minds.  
See below what they have to say about working with me.

Reaching out to Drumfire was the best decision I could have made for the success of our project. Brad's invaluable industry connections mean you can rest assured that the calibre of labour and materials will be outstanding. These connections also give him the ability to fast track timelines based on his customer's needs. Brad's involvement in project management from concept through to completion allowed us to make informed decisions along the way. He provided industry informed suggestions and options with different price points and worked with us to create the highest possible functioning studio while staying within our budget.

Brodie Wishart | Production Manager - Creative Studios, Article.

I greatly enjoyed working with Brad on two recent commercials. He has real passion, commitment and creativity in finding solutions for greens, and he and his team produced fantastic results, whilst working within our budget. He and his team work tremendously hard, and [he] is a great team player ad communicator. I recommend him highly.

Richard Bridgland | Production Designer

I have had the pleasure of working with Brad Lever for the past 2 years. Brad has been such a great resource for me when it comes to greens (and anything else I ever need help with!) He is always willing to help, no matter what the scenario and budget I have to work with.  Brad has always come through for me, even when I’ve thrown last minute greens at him. He does a great job, comes in on budget and is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend using Brad for any of your greens needs!

Joe Carkner | Art Director

I have worked with Brad for five years on The Flash. During that time Brad has demonstrated a competency and an interest in film greens that go above and beyond the call of duty. He is always eager to help and has pulled us out of a bind several times. He thinks quickly on his feet, is always prepared, and really cares about his work. When filming out on location, Brad goes that extra mile to ensure that the location is left even better than when we arrived. I highly recommend Brad as head greens person to whomever is interested.
You will not be disappointed.

Jenny Wilson | Production Designer

I have recently had the pleasure of having Brad Lever take control of the greens department in my last few projects. In both endeavours Brad produced way over expectations while remaining true to the quote given to me. I would not hesitate to recommend Brad for any project needing greens.

Bill LeBlanc | Production Designer, Art Director

I've worked with Brad on both feature films and TV series, and found him to be courteous, professional, proactive, a good problem solver and a very hard worker. I would highly recommend Brad for any position that invloves being a team player or manager; Brad thrives on being challenged.

David Clarke | Art Director

After 2 seasons of having Brad as Head greens I have found him to be reliable, artistic and caring at his position. Would recommend him anytime.

Richard Stranan | Construction Coordinator
