Indie/Low Budget without 1st and 2nd AC

Recommended Posts

A question of crediting; we are low budget indie and shooting DSLR. There aren't 1st or 2nd AC and the slatings will all be done by PAs. During crediting, are they still credited as PAs?


Assuming we have budget to get assistants for our cam ops and their jobs are purely to assist the cam ops but they don't do focus pulling. Are they credited as 2nd AC and there is no mention of 1st AC at all?


Thanx in advance.

I'd suggest going out of your way to credit them. Often independent and DSLR are associated with no budget, and people working for food, coffee and the experience. If they particularly interested in the camera department as a career moving forward then they most likely would appreciate a camera department credit. Taking David's suggestion is a good one. The next producer or DOP that hires them can ask for specific details about their roles if need be.
