Michigan Production Alliance offers Production Algebra P.A. Boot Camps throughout the year. 

The Michigan Production Alliance (MPA) has organized an event to promote the education of entry-level media professionals by offering a half-day seminar.

The seminar Sponsored by the Association of Independent Producers (AICP) will be a lecture and interactive demonstration followed by a panel discussion featuring local professionals. 

The lecture component , presented by MPA’s Mark Adler and other film professionals will provide more than just an overview of what is expected of Production Assistants on both film and video sets and what they can expect. A demonstration segment  will include set and client etiquette, use of radios and forms and a Q&A session will feature knowledgeable industry speakers discussing career paths, local production companies, organizations and unions and the different resources they have to offer.

This event benefits the Non Profit MPA – cost includes P.A. Handbook and 1 year membership in MPA $75.00

We will program a boot camp for your organization too. We need only 10 participants in order to mount a successful session. Contact us to arrange a boot camp!
