A Production Assistant supports other crew members working on film, television or stage productions. Your tasks will vary depending on the project but you might have to make sure performers are ready on time and all production workers have what they need during filming. Production Assistants work closely with the director and may have to ensure their instructions are being followed. You’ll help to make everything run smoothly and sort out any problems that may occur.
Production Assistants need to be organised and have excellent time management skills. You’ll need to be an excellent communicator and make sure everyone in the team is working to schedule. Production Assistants should be flexible and will need good problem solving abilities. You’ll need to work with everyone from actors to producers and the production crew so you’ll need to be good at dealing with people.
