A Two-Day Intensive training that will teach you all the skills you need to get started as a professional Camera Assistant, working ‘one-out’ (a.k.a., on your own) while assisting the DP efficiently. Get ahead in your career with professional education… and win more jobs.

We will provide a comprehensive introduction to camera assisting, with a mix of theoretical knowledge and the practical skills essential for a successful career working in the Camera Dept.

Over the two days, we cover all the fundamentals a camera assistant would be expected to know. These include: Introduction to the Digital Cinema Camera, lens handling and management, camera builds, using accessories, focus pulling, data wrangling, gear prep, slating, setting up to shoot a scene, problem solving, working with your crew and much more.

This short course will be led by Grant Sweetnam who is an incredibly knowledgeable and experienced 1st AC and Focus Puller.
