We had a great Office PA Workshop with instructor Miriam at Open Rivers Pictures office located at Pinewood Atlanta Production Centre. Sign up for our next Office PA Workshop on December 5th.
Office PA, helps the production coordinator. Their job is to keep the office running smoothly. They answer phones, make copies, do runs. Smaller movies may not need (or be able to afford) office PAs, but every TV show has them. The writers write so many scripts, it’d be impossible to copy everything without a PA dedicated to the office.
Of course, there are production companies where you’ll serve the same basic function as an office PA when they’re shooting. That sort of job is more permanent than freelancing as either a set or office PA.
Office PAs have a pretty straight path to being a coordinator. They also interact with departments that spend more time around the office, like art, or the writers. Learning and networking is the real goal of a PA.
