Local 695 Logo

In the early days of the Motion Picture Industry, before coast-to-coast air travel and lightweight mobile camera equipment, there were three centers of film production: New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. Three separate camera Locals represented the camera crews in those areas: IATSE Local 644 in the East, Local 666 in the Midwest and Local 659 in the 13 Western states.

In January of 2002, the Publicists Guild merged into the ICG and we now represent Publicists nationwide, as well as camera crews.
