What do you need to know to get that first job on a film set? WIFVNE President Emerita Alecia Orsini walks you through some of the lingo, gear, and best practices for becoming a production assistant.
Do you know how to properly wrap a cable? Fly in a pancake? Or lock up a set? When should you expect to be paid and how much? Review set safety concerns to protect yourself and other crew members. Learn all about this and more, and a few lucky participants will get to prove that they have what it takes.
