Beyond Film School Favorite Product Picks!
Set Production Assistant Gear
People always ask me “What do I need as a PA?” Well here are my suggestions. I bring to you the Beyond Film School favorite product picks!
I added some weather gear as well, because I definitely learned the hard way. Don’t get stuck outside when it’s pouring rain, or freezing out without the proper gear on. Even when the callsheet says a scene might be interior, it doesn’t mean you will be.
Always be prepared. When it comes to winter gear, dress in layers! When it comes to rain, always go water PROOF. Not water evap-tech, or quick drying. WATERPROOF!
Favorite Everyday Footwear
Take care of your FEET! Wear footwear that is comfortable and has the support needed. You will be on your feet for hours! These are the brands and styles I see the most on set, and my personal favorite is definitely Asics sneakers!
Do you need film school? I would say no. You don’t NEED it. Don’t be afraid to read up on the topic of filmmaking. There are so many books out there (the very same books that film schools have used) that you can use to educate yourself without spending thousands of dollars per semester.
Here are a few of my favorite that span a few disciplines in filmmaking. Also, if you can’t buy theses books then hit up your library. Yes, a Library – free books! 🙂
Do you have a set recommendation? Please share it with me and I’ll put it up here! Any questions? Contact me here. 🙂
