Meet The MPS Crew: Jason Huggins
Jason on set!
Meet Jason Huggins, Rental Assistant at MPS Austin! When he’s not checking to make sure our gear is in tip top shape, he’s enjoying the great outdoors, reveling in taco bliss, or getting his Fiddler-on-the-Roof on. Sometimes all three at once.
1. How did you get your start with MPS and how long have you been with the company?
I worked in camera departments as a camera assistant in Los Angeles before moving back to my home state and starting at MPS in the summer of 2015.
2. When you’re not at MPS, where can we find you? i.e. How do you recharge?
I like to recharge by hiking the trails around town, playing tennis and disc golf, grilling outside and catching up on sleep. And tacos.
3. What’s your favorite piece of equipment to work with?
I’d have to say the Arri 435. Dependable, reliable and versatile. Best of all, no waiting on sound!
4. If we were to hop onto your music playlist, what would we see you were listening to most recently?
Pandora says a whole lot of hip hop and then Fiddler on The Roof? I guess that sounds right.
5. If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
I’m thinking most people choose the power of flight, huh? Ain’t nobody got time for that! Cut out the middle man and just teleport there!
