Camera Assistant Trainee Course – 2019

About the workshop

The purpose of the camera trainee course is to provide the basic set of skills needed to work on a Western-based union set (BC, AB, SK, MB, Yukon, Northwest Territories). This course is structured to give participants an introduction to cinematography within a union environment. The emphasis will be on the camera department, specifically the duties of a camera trainee who is working towards becoming a 2nd camera assistant.

This course will be taught in a combination of lecture and hands on teaching techniques. The course will follow a typical day in the life of a trainee; from getting the call to work, arriving at the truck, going to set, and so on. Topics will include safety, protocol, equipment, marking, slating, and trainee duties on set.
