Responsibilities of a Camera PA

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am hoping to get some Cam PA gigs while out in LA for the semester and was just wondering what everyone's perception is of the Camera PA. What are their duties/responsibilities? What is expected of them?


Was just looking for some outside input to know what to bring to the table. I imagine it's nothing glorious, and with a good 1st and 2nd, I could see a lot of standing around waiting to help being a reality.

Camera PAs don't really have specific responsibilities. Just be as helpful as you can. Carry cases. Fetch coffee. Stand on marks for focus. Don't get in the way. Learn as much as you can, but remember that the ACs are not there to teach you.
