Some of you may have noticed it’s been a while since my last post. Then again, some of you may not have, considering the 500 or so readers I still get every day. (Weird.)
There’s a lot of reasons for this, including that awkward feeling you get when you haven’t posted in a while, that the next post had better be Important and Momentous.
So, that’s what this post is. And the reason this post is Important and Momentous is… it will be my last.
Not the last. My last. I hereby announce my search for the next anonymous production assistant.
Over the years, several people have sent me stories, or told me stories on set, and I’ve appropriated these to be in my own voice. The next logical step is to simply hand over the writing to someone else altogether.
This really only makes sense. The job of a PA will continue to evolve, even when I’m old and gray. (I’ve had UPMs tell me stories about mimeograph machines, and carrying quarters around so they could call the office from pay phones.)
Before that happens, I’d like to pass the torch on. Let’s hear stories from someone who had a Facebook account in high school, who doesn’t remember a time when the Soviet Union existed, who has never used a cell phone to actually speak to someone.
I’d really like to keep this blog going, even if I’m not the one doing the writing. Do you think you could be the next TAPA? Email me now.
