Production Assistant

A job as a production assistant is the unofficial training program of the film and television industry. If you do not live next door to one of the Weinstein brothers and are in no way related to Steven Spielberg or Ron Howard, then nabbing a gig as a PA is the best way to break into film and TV.

Line Producer

Expenditures on every film or television production are divided in two segments: above the line and below the line. Above the line refers to writers, producers, directors, and actors (including extras). Below the line refers to everything else: that is, crew, sets, equipment rental, insurance, and so on. In the middle of that division is the line producer—the line.

Script Supervisor

A lack of continuity in a film or TV episode can be incredibly distracting to the audience. If you have a keen eye, you may notice certain inconsistencies. For example, in Dark Knight the banner on the building that is the scene of Batman and Joker’s final standoff first reads “DAVIS,” then in a later shot has changed to “BOVIS.” Some mistakes are more obvious, like when an actor is wearing glasses in one shot and then the glasses mysteriously disappear in the next. These flubs happen because separate takes of a scene may be shot and re-shot days or weeks apart.
