Today’s guest is a 2nd AD who got into the DGA the hard way– by earning his days as a set PA. It is not easy.
Anthony Robinson tells us about everything from buying lunch to directing background actors, all while maintaining a positive attitude. Here’s a little secret that even Anthony doesn’t know– I’ve been a PA on a show with him, and I can vouch for the fact that he is easily the happiest-go-luckiest AD I’ve ever seen.
If you’re a fan of Survivor, you may recognize Anthony from the Fiji season a few years ago. He didn’t win, obviously; if you won a million dollars, you wouldn’t continue being a PA, either.
