Assistant to Producer
ConfidentialLos Angeles, CA
Full Time Job
I'm looking for a full-time assistant.
The job is assisting in my work as a creative producer and writer. The main thing I am looking for is someone I like creatively as their job is mainly helping me nurture the creative process so insight into what I am specifically trying to achieve there is essential. Helping with the writing is big and my choice will reflect its priority as I need the help.
That all takes up most of the day. There are normal assistant duties too, phones, schedules, organizing travel, etc. The only personal stuff I ask of my assistant can be done from their desk, they aren't ever like taking in my dry cleaning or feeding my cat if I had one. But the job does include doing little things here and there that free me up to focus on my work.
Experience isn't a negative but those right out of college are also strongly encouraged to apply. The ability to articulate creative insight is much more important than experience. Best candidates are usually serious about writing or helping writers and are pretty (film) literate.
They also need to commit to a minimum of a year, that is firm.
The hours are roughly 9-6 M-F though there is sometimes work that has to get done at night or on weekends too. I ask for first call on off hours so on the rare occasions when something needs to get done there is an understanding that my assistant will drop what they had planned. Within reason. Of course sometimes tasks aren't too timely and your plans are more important. Typically, in that case, the person says oh, I actually have my grandmother in visiting just for tonight, how urgent is this and we talk about it. It all always works out. It's also a priority for me that my assistant have a life and plenty of down time and rest and have fun on and off the job.
My assistant also travels with me when I go shoot the films which ends up usually taking a few months. Though the next one may shoot in LA.
