Intro to PA.jpg

The Production Assistant or PA is the entry level position that can teach you the business from the ground up, as well as help you prove you've got what it takes to join other departments if ADing is not for you. Set and Office PAs must be hard working, skilled, team players willing to do what it takes to keep a production running. This introductory workshop covers set and office PA duties and responsibilities, set terminology and etiquette, dos and don'ts, and how to gain experience building a resume.

Those interested can register now through Eventbrite.
