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.

    I noticed on Georgia’s film website, there are summer dates for upcoming workshops for Office Production Assistant. Are those summer dates correct?

    Had a great day at the recent Office PA workshop. It beat my expectations! Nathan (instructor) shared a comprehensive look at a day in the life of a Office PA; offered in an easy to follow format, complete with role playing, activities and handouts. The Resume advice was key for me.
