This comprehensive one-day course stresses foundational must-know information of the workings on any fast-paced film set and is required by all film unions and guilds in BC.

The motion picture industry has high expectations of crew members, their knowledge and expertise, in order to “get the shot and make the day.” Course topics include current filming information, growth and trends in the industry, its collaborative nature, demands and challenges facing production crew, job descriptions, on-set language, location respect, reading and understanding a call sheet, and on-set safety considerations and protocols for stunts and special effects. This immediately practical information could save you on your first week of work.
