Intro to PA Work & Set Etiquette (June 2019)
$20 for NWFF Members
In this one-night workshop, students will learn how to be an effective production assistant, which is often the first point of entry into the filmmaking business! Being a well-trained PA can help you make a good impression upon other members of the film crew, helping you network better, gain access to more high-level roles, and gain hands-on experience into the ins-and-outs of filmmaking fundamentals.
By the end of this course, you will know all about the different responsibilities of a PA, as well as vital etiquette for working on film sets.
After completing this workshop, students can sign up to be on Northwest Film Forum’s PA call list for local productions and companies, and find opportunities to further their careers.
