Production Assistant Workshop
Time & Location
About The Event
Southwest Alternate Media Project (SWAMP), in collaboration with The Texas Film Commission, is offering a two-day, introductory Production Assistant (P.A.) Workshop. This certification course teaches the necessary skills for the industry’s entry level position of Production Assistant. You will learn the jargon, terminology, paperwork, etiquette, processes and physical requirements of the job. Taught by active working industry professionals, the workshop develops the skills and flexibility needed to be successful in finding work and building a career.
The P.A. Workshop also creates an opportunity to learn about industry positions beyond the entry level in departments such camera, locations, grip/electric, production, wardrobe, art department, transportation, and accounting. After completing this workshop, students will have learned the job requirements to succeed as a P.A. and realistically visualize a career path working up the latter in the film, television and commercial industries.
Students receive P.A. Workshop Certification by the Texas Film Commission upon completion of the course which entitles students to be listed in the Texas Production Directory as a TFC certified P.A. available at the Texas Film Commission’s website.
