This two day Production Assistant bootcamp-style workshop is perfect for those just starting their career as a PA as well as those looking to advance their knowledge of what it takes to succeed as an office or on set production assistant working on commercials, industrials, music videos, independent films, television series and studio features. Training includes but is not limited to production terminology and paperwork, film crew titles and job descriptions, set etiquette - do's and don'ts, how a typical day proceeds, locking up the set, how to help set background, and walkie sign out. We discuss must have PA gear and kits, and provide hands-on walkie and equipment training as well as resume creation and where to find experience as well as paid work. Learn how successful office and set PAs as well as assistant directors got into the business, what they look for when they hire PAs, their tips for success, and what their pet peeves are.
