This is a BOOT CAMP
Not a school. Not a class. Not a seminar. Not a powerpoint presentation.
It is an intensive, BRAIN-COMBUSTING training
“P.A. BOOTCAMP” is NOT just the name of our program, it is a DESCRIPTION
P.A. Bootcamp is a Short, Intense, Strict and Rigorous training course.
Our goal is to mold you into the kind of Set P.A. and/or Office P.A. shows want to hire.
A partial list of what is included in our 2 day intensive program:
Making the film, from prep to post
– All production paperwork
– Production terminology
– Hands on radio training with radios (walkie talkies) & Surv. Mics
– Set protocol, i.e. “do’s and don’ts”
– How the A.D. team functions
– Other crew departments function and interaction
– Gear and supplies
– The Office P.A. (Distribution, Sides, Script Revisions)
– How to be a highly effective Set and Office Production Assistant
– How to anticipate the needs of your production
– Lock-Ups, Call Outs, Daily & Nightly duties
– Film and TV versus commercials/videos/low budget P.A.
– Preparing your resume
– Where to find production jobs and understanding the industry career path
P.A. Bootcamp is designed as a real-world, practical job training program. If you are going to your first day of work as a P.A., wouldn’t it be better to know what is going on all around you? Our goal is to prepare you thoroughly and completely for the job of Production Assistant, which is your first step into the entertainment business as it has been for many highly successful producers, executives, directors and others currently working in the industry.
Working as a P.A. on a feature film is different from working on a commercial or music video
P.A. Bootcamp trains for ALL types of production.
– Features: high and low budget
– Episodic TV
– Reality shows
– Music videos
