Here are closing thoughts on this training series about working on a film set. Working on a film set is hard work, and it is important that the cast and crew remain professional for the sake of the film production, but also for safety. Film sets in various locales might vary slightly, but the basics of this film workflow is standard throughout the world.
- Well everybody,…this is the end of our training series…about working on a film set.…Thank you so much for watching this training…and sharing this journey with us.…Of course we can't cover everything…about working on set…and they do things differently…in different parts of the world.…But what we've covered here…are the almost universal basics…on film sets throughout the world.…And a lot of these concepts…have been the same for decades.…Film sets have a lot less stringent rules…and oversight than standard workplaces.…So it's extra important to be professional…and follow these guidelines.…
I also recommend that you get a little experience…with each crew position on a set.…Even if you just have to volunteer…for a weekend on a student film.…Even if you just want to be a director,…understanding what it feels like…to have focus like a Scripts Supervisor…or understanding what it feels like…to be at the bottom of the ladder…and be everyone's servant as the PA,…understand the craft of lighting and camera work…or what it feels like as an actor to have…
