“In two days I knew everything I needed to know to start my career as a Production Assistant. Amber makes learning easy and welcoming. We learned about the tools of the trade and the vital communication skills everyone needs. Even after the course she’s been giving of her time helping me continue in my film career.” 

-Navarre Paulino

Set PA Class of July 2020

“The Beyond Film School Set PA Training Course was an awesome, in-depth experience that gave me the knowledge, confidence, and network to set foot and succeed on a film set. The course provided hands-on training to learn how to communicate and what is expected of you on set as a PA. Amber is an amazing instructor who sincerely wants to see you succeed. She is incredibly friendly and generous with her time, and will always give you honest feedback and advice about getting started in the industry. Lastly, the improvements Amber made to my resume instantly made an impact and I was able to book my first job a month after taking the class. If you have always dreamed about working on a film set, but have no idea where to start, start with Beyond Film School!”
