About 10 years ago I landed in Los Angeles and was eager to break into the film industry. I had a film degree and a few connections but was still struggling to make any real progress. After a year of working on really low-budget movies I finally made the plunge and signed up for PA Bootcamp. Even after graduating film school and working on sets I still learned a ton from the veteran ADs that led the training that weekend. In addition to making some really good contacts you will learn everything from set etiquette, production lingo, set protocol, supplies, typical duties and career advice.
Today I often hire PAs and its always helpful if they have been to a workshop intensive like PA Bootcamp. Occasionally I might see a resume that lists PA Bootcamp and this type of thing always sticks out to me.
