Wade Heath Story or Heath as he is known to family and friends has not only been an avid film goer he also delved into the medium early on by packing up and moving to California where he got first hand experience in front of the camera during the late nineties movie and television teen boom. “Between 1999 and 2001 if a show had a high school or a prom I was there. It was fun and exciting and was infinitely better than waiting tables. I have always loved acting and the experience served me well. You can never understand a set unless you’ve been on one.”
Understanding the medium from both sides of the camera has served him well. “The entire process from the sets to the crew to the wardrobe to the extras has to be in sync or you’re dead out the gate” he says. “ I loved all of it but I was fascinated by the production and set designers collaboration with every department.” If there’s a red couch, the actor can’t wear a red shirt. If there’s a red wall the couch can’t be red. I love the management of the visual aspect of a production.”
Heath has been designing and renovating his whole life for friends, family and friends and family of friends and family. At some point you realize that 1) people like your style and 2) you should find a way to make a living at it. In recent years he decided to put his innate sense of color and placement to work in the film business. An ongoing personal and working relationship with his partners in Harbor Heights Entertainment (“…they are quite simply my best friends.”) led to him making his production designing film debut with the short CONNOR & JAYDEN.
