Whether you have previous experience, or are new to the industry, this 3.5 day training led by experienced industry professionals will prepare you for the exciting and fast-paced world of production and working on set.

This immersive bootcamp experience guides participants through the fundamentals of working in the industry and on a set, including script breakdowns, script continuity, who’s who on a call sheet, preparing for a day’s work, chain of command and other key production assistant roles.
