  • Passion: The proactive contribution of a Production Assistant is critical to the success of any filming project and it is, therefore, vital that you have a great passion for what you do and you should highlight this on your CV.
  • Willingness to learn: The Media, Film and TV industry is very broad, and it is unlikely that your new employer will be employing exactly the same software, programs and equipment that you have used before. You should place emphasis on your CV that you are a quick learner and are always willing to learn new things.

Good Luck!
