Just wrapped up another shoot. And as always I loved every minute of it. I know that I work in the Production Office the whole time and pretty much handle paperwork for most of my day during production, but I’m not complaining. To be honest I really love it. I know what you’re thinking. You’re probably thinking, “if you love paperwork so much why don’t you just work a 9-5 like most people?” And my answer is because I will most likely not have the same amount of love for that job, that I have for this. I know that if I did that, I would have hated coming into work. I would have always just dreaded the day until I got off. Yes the hours on set are long, but it doesn’t feel that way. Well not to me at least.
I also think I’m getting a better handle on being an Office PA too. And I’m hoping that within the next few months I might be able to move up to Production Secretary or APOC (Asst Prod Office Coord) and then eventually become a Line Producer/UPM.
What I love most about film production jobs is that they’re not all the same. The job’s never the same. There’s always something new to learn. AND I’m not stuck in the same location every time. Maybe that’s what scares a lot of people from not pursuing a career in the arts. Because there’s not stability in it. And most people out there, want the stability you know?
Well that’s all I have to say. I hope you enjoyed reading this as well as looking at my lovely pictures too. I try to keep it interesting for you, don’t want to let it all just be boring text you know? 😉
Until the next job, this is Michelle signing off…
