1st Assistant Director

Watch Anya Adams, 1st Assistant Director for the television show “Blackish”, discuss the two main aspects of her job: preparing to film a script by breaking down all the required elements, and then being in charge of all the day-to-day activities on set when shooting the episode. She tells girls that getting a job behind the scenes in television is not just dependent on doing high quality work, but you also need to be mindful of how you treat people, how you keep up with them and how they remember you. Her advice to girls is to speak your truth. Know what is it that you want to do, and tell others so that they can help you.
