Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in the entertainment industry? Well, thanks to Reece Feldman, we have an answer for you! Reece is a 23-year-old living in New York City and is currently a production assistant on “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” He has a TikTok account called @guywithamoviecamera which has 619.7k followers where he shares all the insider info on what it’s like to work in the industry. Here’s everything we’ve learned from him (so far)!
1. What is a production assistant
“PA” is short for “production assistant,” and PAs on set have a ton of responsibility for making sure everything runs smoothly. Reece describes the job as literally helping out with production. This may mean restocking the kitchen, driving the golf cart, and picking up lunch. Reece shares that his main duties take place in the office and include recording scorecards, printing scripts and answering phone calls from various departments. However, his favorite task is to set races where he delivers stuff to different departments and gets to see a ton of behind the scenes content!
2. What is a set of guided tours?
Reece doesn’t just help out in ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ office – he gets on set too! Another task that Reece has shared with his followers is his daily tours of the set in the morning. Here he walks around checking things like water damage, animals and that the electricity is working. We have to say, it looks a little scary!
3. How to configure table reads
Another of Reece’s responsibilities as PA is setting up table reads. For those who don’t know what a table read is, Reece describes them as a dress rehearsal with only dialogue. Reece tells his followers that his job is to make sure everyone has everything they need, including pens, highlighters and, of course, scripts.
4. What it’s like to work a first
While Reece is PA, his hustle doesn’t stop there. He is constantly doing things outside of his job to gain experience in other areas of the industry. For example, he worked on the alley of nightmares world premiere and its press day! At the premiere, Reece jumped onto the carpet with a phone and mic and was tasked with getting footage of the cast and crew arriving to post on their social media! Talk about a dream job! Reece shared that he tried to play it cool Willem Defoeaka the Green Goblin!
5. What it’s like to work the Oscar nominees’ lunch
Another cool job Reece has done is the Oscar nominees luncheon! Or Andrew Garfield say hello by name! But it doesn’t stop there, he also asked her how she was! Jealous would be an understatement! Reece was also very excited about the interaction.
