Set Etiquette

Starts May 16

1 session: Saturday, May 16, 10am–2pm

Whether it’s a commercial or low-budget indie film shoot, the production set is active, fast-paced, and highly collaborative. Like any busy workplace, safety is key, but on a set it must be a top priority. Combining electricity, rigging, camera, and audio can spell trouble if people don’t communicate effectively and follow certain universal procedures. In this workshop you’ll learn about various crew positions and responsibilities, and important rules of set etiquette that will guarantee a successful shoot.

Tuition: $100 regular/$75 members/$55 low-income
