One of the most wonderful aspects of working with minors on set in BC is that every day has the possibility of bringing new experiences for our students and teachers. Being well prepared for your day is essential in the film industry, but being able to go with the flow and adapt to changes is equally as important. Our team of set teachers find themselves very fortunate to work with small groups, and often times individual students where they are able to assess a child’s state of mind as they move through their day together. Being in tune means knowing when it’s the right time to teach a more complicated subject and when it’s time to enjoy lighter material. It also means being open to learn new things from the students!
Sometimes a child actor we work with is in their very first role, so having a set tutor who is experienced with life on a set is invaluable for the guidance they provide and confidence they instill in the child. After all, we do remember what it’s like to be students ourselves! We pride ourselves on being open minded to the needs of the parents and perceptive to the needs of production. Being willing to work with, and learn from everyone has provided our team with countless memories to cherish and carry forward with us onto each new show.
