"What I enjoyed about being a production assistant was the support and direction I received and the positive and supportive atmosphere on set. I worked on continuity, props, casting and assisting wherever was needed. I gain experience in many aspects of the production process and I was given the tools to progress in a career in film production"
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesWe've already started and you would jump right in and hit the ground running, but our timeline extends to this time next year. That said we are open to adjusting the role to be short term (3 month commitment, 6 month commitment) and have multiple applicants take on the role in stages if a long-term time commitment is unfeasible.
This job is unpaid - Unpaid initially, aiming to pay once there is momentum and funding. Copies of our funding strategy are available on request to help you better weigh up the risk/reward balance.
Expenses paid - Fuel, food, accommodation, supplies and materials for the production
Time commitment is 5-10 hours a week, days/times are flexible; we respect your time and the initial voluntary basis of the role.
With us you get:
- Respect for your learning and growth
- Contribution to the vision both creatively and through administration
- Your input valued and included in the refinement of this new production process
- A production that approaches problem-solving in a flexible and creative way
- Flat hierarchy (compared to traditional productions)
