Posted by Richard "RB" Botto

Happy Sunday to all. Hope you're all having a fulfilling and creative weekend.

Coffee is brewed and piping let's get to the content.

First up today, our friends at Film Riot keep cranking out great content. In our first video this morning, 5 Must Know Tips When Working on Set gives grips sound advice. Being a grip isn't just about being technical, it's about being smart and timely, too.

Second, a video no aspiring production crew member is going to want to miss, A Day in the Life of a Production Assistant. It's often the first job a crew member takes when she or he wants to get in on the ground floor of filmmaking. RocketJump Film School offers a great video that moves into the corners of the PA job that some of you may not have been aware of.

As always, I ask you to get out there and share this content with those who you think could benefit from viewing. Post it on your other social media accounts - Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc - or simply drop someone an email with the link. Sharing is caring.

And, of course, I welcome thoughts, rantings and musings in the comments section below.
