Book recommendation for A.C.
on Nov 22, 2014 at 4:50:35 am

Hi, Everyone

I'm looking to getting a first-time job as a 2nd or Camera PA at the beginning of next year. What recommendations would you have for me? I'd like to purchase a book to begin reading up on the nuances of being an A.C., but am unsure as to which book out there is the best "bang for your buck."

Thank you for taking time in helping me.

Sincerely,

Brandon Eastman

Thank you, Mr. Suszko and Mr. Tufekcioglu. I'll look at ordering those books soon. The blog is pretty informative, thanks for naming that one.

Hi Brandon, you've gotten some very good advice here.

I would also recommend downloading David Elkins' excellent The Camera Assistant's Manual to Kindle for less than $30.

This book, and the companion website, are tremendous resources for the beginning AC and well worth the $30 investment.

Hope this is helpful!
