    I was wondering if the production could use extra hands on the set. Camera operator/assistant or any extra work. My husband is attending Fullsail University. I thought this maybe a good opportunity for him to get to be in the scenes. I see house of cards will be doing a season 5 here in Baltimore. I remember the marveled look on his face as he seen y’all recording.
