Case study: Jocelyn talks about film school and explores a few reasons why film school may not prepare you for the industry. If you are thinking about getting into film school, acting school, or any other industry related education, you’ll want to listen to what Jocelyn has to say.
It’s true that there is a lot to learn in film. One way is to learn through a mentor-to-apprentice relationship, right on set.
You don’t need to pack your bags and head to a film school in a distant city. You can find opportunities to get on set in the area where you live. Production happens everywhere.
A-List mentor Jocelyn joined the A-List Work Study Program and implemented the steps. She not only got on set, she got promoted. She’s worked as a production coordinator, and she’s worked for Steve Harvey.
Jocelyn started out like everyone else, as a production assistant. This is an entry level job that gives you the opportunity to make the film set your school. A production assistant is the support for the production. You’ll get to see all of the crafts in action, working together. You’ll also have opportunities to learn your craft.
You can learn your craft and technical expertise while on set.
