What Does a TV Production Assistant Do?

By March 8, 2023November 15th, 2023Programs

When: Sunday, March 19, 2023 @ 1:00 p.m.

Place: Virtual

Speaker: Nicole Suganuma, GLA JACL Member

Business Meeting: 2:00 p.m. meeting or after program

Program: Going from a hopeful professor of anthropology to working in the film and television industry was never something Nicole considered realistic or possible. With no formal film training or network in the industry, she made the jump into the new career path without really knowing what adventures lay ahead. Currently, she works as a Production Assistant in the Assistant Directors department helping to manage cast and crew on set. Making the shift from academia into television production has been tough but rewarding and she hopes that by sharing her story, others will be encouraged in their own paths. Some of her past credits include This Is UsThe GoldbergsStar TrekPicardFor All Mankind, and the Predator prequel Prey.
