Getting a PA job is as hard as any job search. The first question is "Where do I start?" You can start on job sites, craigslist or production staffing websites.

DISCLAIMER: BE VERY CAREFUL ON CRAIGSLIST. EXTREME CAUTION!!

Reach out to production houses, filmmakers and videographers about their company. BUT DO NOT start the email off by asking for a job. "Hi, I'm looking to see if you have any openings." [DELETE]

Offer that company something of value. What can you bring to the table?

Driver's License

It's a catch-22. You need one. Should that discourage you? Hell No!

Expect "No" 99% of the time anyways and show people that you're willing to work your ass off regardless of a driver's license.

My Life Story (sort of)- http://bit.ly/jpa_mylife

I can remember picking up my family's video camera as a teenager and being enthralled that I could make an impact in someone's life. The filmmaking process is complex but at the heart of it simple: tell a compelling story. 

What resonates the hardest is visual storytelling. The ability to create an emotion or convey an idea through an image is what drives my career as a filmmaker. My marathon mentality is focused on becoming the best cinematographer possible.
