WHAT ARE THE FIRST STEPS IF YOU WANT TO WORK IN THE PRODUCTION OFFICE.

August 2017 | Georgie McGahey

Forging a career as a production assistant is one of the most popular career paths for MFJF members. So how do you make a start?

Let's not mince words, finding a foothold in the film industry can be really hard work. Your success is built on lots of mini - if not micro - steps; building up knowledge, experience and contacts over months for some and years for others. 

The production office is one of the most popular career paths, but what does it take to start finding success on larger budget productions? What ground work do you need to lay to make sure your application stands out? 

MFJF member Amber shares some of her sage advice on how she built up her experience, enabling her to find work on major productions.
