Have you ever sat through the movie credits?

If you are one of the few then you would have seen the hundreds of different job titles. No, the best boy grip does not describe an arm wrestling champion.

This series or short videos will explain the different roles on a film set and what they do.

Today, we will talk about the First Assistant Director. One of the most important roles. Without the First Assistant Director would crumble.

Now when you go to the theater, you can impress (or annoy) your friends with your new knowledge.
