The public is invited to train for jobs in Michigan’s burgeoning film industry at Madonna University during “Production Algebra / Production Assistant (P.A.) Boot Camp,” offered through the Michigan Production Alliance (MPA).
The unique workshop, hosted by the Madonna University Broadcast Club, takes place Saturday, Feb. 7, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
The P.A. Boot Camp will provide more than just an overview of what is expected of production assistants on both film and video sets. MPA instructor Mark Adler will engage students with demonstrations, hands-on activities, form usage exercises, and give a review of set/client etiquette. Students will gain job search tips from a panel of production professionals during an informative discussion on local production companies, unions and film organizations, and the resources they offer.
