What to expect from working Film and TV shoots
Working on TV sets or on Location is normally a long day. Typically, you would be working on your own, or with another team member on 10 or 12 hour shifts. As a film unit Medic you would be expected to make sure that medical help is on hand, immediately, if there is an accident or other medical emergency. This could be anything from a minor incident to something more serious as a result of a ‘stunt’ or other ‘risky’ filming experience. However, the day to day well being of the crew is also part of the role whether it be ‘arrival screening’ following COVID risk assessment protocols or administering paracetamol or plasters.
Your working day will not all be exciting moments, mixing with actors, It is generally a slow process, so it will involve being fully engaged throughout the day, always paying attention and making yourself useful. It will NOT be collecting autographs and posting on social media. The impression you make whilst working with cast and crew will be very important if you want to be asked back again. In other words, your promptness, professionalism, willingness to be helpful and ‘go the extra mile’ will be your own advert.
Something to consider with Film work is its slightly unpredictable nature, Long days, potential overruns, changes in location do happen so if you cannot be flexible or you are not comfortable with navigation then this is probably not the career for you.
