Film Set Rule #1 – Everyday is a Job Interview

Pin It

Whether you know it or not…


Your performance on set determines if you come back tomorrow.  Maybe your attitude/behavior/job performance isn’t so bad that they’ll fire you, but are you good enough to be asked back next time?

When a gig wrap up, every department head asks themselves “Would I hire this person again?” and, “Are they better than the guy I usually hire?”

As a cameraman, I’ve worked with dozens of Camera Assistants (AC).  Every AC I work with is competing against every AC I’ve ever met for the next job.  There are tons of amazing ACs, but I can only hire one (or 2) for each job.  The competition is steep.  Do your best everyday.
