Spotlight On Location Professional – Janet Weiss

Janet Weiss, on location in the control tower of the Morrison Bridge, Portland, Oregon.

My name is Janet Weiss and I live a double life. A Portland, OR resident since 1989, I moved here from the Bay Area to play music and to take advantage of cheap rent and basements in which to practice. I’ve been the drummer in Sleater-Kinney and Quasi ever since (amongst others). Ten years ago I got myself an amazing day job… Location Manager! I cut my teeth five seasons on the fast paced whirlwind of a show, “Portlandia” and am currently enjoying the rewarding challenges working on feature films. What I absolutely love about location managing is utilizing our captivating Oregon landscape to tell a story – to translate a director’s creative vision into the visual language of Portland and beyond. On a film crew, or in a band, I can’t imagine a more incredible place to work.
