The Michigan Production Alliance offers Seminars for those who wish to learn about what it takes to work on a commercial, corporate project or feature film. The MPA Production Algebra "P.A. Bootcamp" is one of our signature events.

The seminar includes lecture components and demonstrations and varies in time - general 9am through 3pm


Session 1 - Lecture.

The lecture will provide more than just an overview of what is expected of Production Assistants on both film and video sets. It will include 2 way radio demos, rental equipment overview as well as set and client etiquette. There will be a discussion about local production companies, organizations and unions and the different resources they have to offer.

Session 2 - Moderated Discussion.

A panel of local producers, coordinators and assistant directors will discuss their experiences on the set and expectations from crewmembers during production and post-production. The discussion will be followed by a question and answer session.
