David Trotti – First Assistant Director (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Voyager, Enterprise)

David has worked in the production of numerous television shows in his twenty year career including eleven years on the long running Star Trek franchise (Star Trek: Next Generation, Voyager and Enterprise), four years on the NBC spy-comedy series Chuck and seasons of Burn Notice, Cold Case, The Night Shift and others. He just completed work in Albuquerque on a new pilot for the CW called The Messengers due out in Fall of 2014 and will begin a film in St. Louis in May. The role of the Assistant Director in television is to bridge the gap between creative and production teams and help the words on the page and the vision in the director’s imagination become practical elements that can be brought together and filmed within the limits of the budget and dictates of the schedule. This begins in the earliest stages of preparing a project and carries on to the last day of production.
