How To Become Hollywood’s #1 “Must-Hire” On Major Productions… Without ANY Insider Contacts or Experience

Hollywood PA Masterclass

This is a sponsored post about a free Production Assistant Masterclass. You may have noticed I don’t do a lot of sponsored content; that’s because I screen these sorts of things very carefully. If I don’t believe the product or service will benefit my readers, I won’t take the money.

Additionally, two other factors led me to share this with you: 1) it’s free, so what can you lose? 2) I happen to know the sponsor, Derek, is a long-time reader himself. Thus, a lot of his advice is just my own advice filtered through his experience. 🙂 If I didn’t think his class was good, it would be my own fault! Sign up now, or read on for more information.

The vision was spine-tingling… inspire PA’s that their dream matters, then give them the industry’s most advanced training to make that dream happen. Hollywood Expert was born through observing over 1,000 PA’s on set — followed by an obsession to boil down exactly WHY losers lose and winners win. The results were shockingly cut-and-dry…

Winners Take ACTION

Hollywood Expert’s ACTION™ Masterclass is the “secret formula”1 that gives PA’s immediate traction — allowing them to build momentum, until they literally2 become unstoppable.

The FREE course blends strategic psychology with practical, battle-tested industry secrets. Here’s just a small taste of what you’ll discover in this FREE masterclass…

  • The most common “career killing” mistake PA’s make that virtually ruins their chance of getting hired on future shows… (Do NOT step onto another film set until you read this!)
  • A little-known trick to get hired as a PA — even if you have no experience, no resume and no insider contacts…
  • The #1 “newbie mistake” PA’s make that destroys their reputation on set… (You’ve probably already done this without knowing!)
  • The one thing you should NEVER say that will get you instantly added to the crew’s “never-hire” blacklist…
  • How to beat the “Catch 22” problem of needing experience to gain experience…
  • A “can’t miss” way to get on the radar of producers and AD’s — even if it’s your first day on set — and instantly establish yourself as a “must-hire”…
  • Why your business card could actually destroy your chances of getting hired… (Do NOT hand out another card until you make this critical change!)
  • A powerful psychological secret that subconsciously “inspires” your contacts to recommend you, even without you asking…
  • How to find solutions to problems before they even happen… with the same battle-tested skill used by law enforcement, military, aviation, emergency medicine, pandemic officials, and others…
  • And much, much more…

Free… For Now

TAPA here again. Listen, hyperbole aside, this class is really quite good, especially if you’re new to the industry. They say experience is the best teacher, but he’s also kinda crazy.

Personally, I think the best teachers are the best teachers. There are some things you can only learn in the real world, but there is a hell of a lot you can learn from others’ experiences, too. That’s why I write this blog; it’s why Derek created this masterclass.

The first PA Masterclass is June 19th. Sign up now to reserve your spot. In the future, the class will cost you some money, so getting in on this first round is a smart idea.

Meet Your New Professor

In 2012, Derek moved to LA with nothing but a dream (and one last bag of ramen). Broke, dirt broke. After months of dead-end “cold calls,” he almost gave up. Until one day, it hit him out of nowhere…

The question that had haunted him — “Why do some PA’s fail and others succeed?” — suddenly made sense. His career exploded overnight. He had discovered the “secret formula…”

From a no-name nobody… to getting hired on The Voice, Furious 7,3 Daft Punk’s Instant Crush and over 100 major productions… Derek has helped hundreds of PA’s go from “career flatline” to “must-hire.”

Footnotes    (↩ returns to text)

  1. Ed. Note: It’s not actually a secret; it just takes some time and effort to learn. The purpose of the class is to give a head start, so you don’t have to learn everything the hard way.
  2. Ed. Note: Not literally.
  3. Ed. Note: Hey, it’s not Derek’s fault these movies are titled stupidly.
