The role as PA is too essentially to support the Director and Producer throughout the project, this could be assisting them on set whether it be on location or in the television studio. This role also involves organising the production paperwork, this can include booking facilities, organinsing location reccys, writing up notes from meetings which are then passed on to other members of the group.

This week, we had our first meeting and established what exactly each of us individually wanted to achieve from this term. We also worked out exactly what area of the previous footage needed to be improved and how we could organise our time better. I also met up with the Director and Producer and together we worked out an ongoing week by week schedule for the purpose of getting everything filmed and everybody understood exactly what we need to do.

In addition to this role I also took on the role of costume designer, which means I have the responsibility of making sure each character has a costume for every scene. The costumes themselves need to fit the time period we are aiming for and also got to look good on screen, as a group we felt that the costumes needed to be more improved this term, so my starting point was to research what influences there were for clothes of the 70’s, including the punk outfits.
