Production assistant resumes are drafted by people associated with the film fraternity. Candidates who wish to make a career in film production look to assist learned and experienced film makers before they take the plunge. Production assistant cover letters are drafted by those enthusiasts who wish to make it big in the entertainment industry.
Individual who wish to pursue this career and are fresh out of college are recommended to assist a producer in the initial stages because it not only gives them hands on experience but also boost the much needed confidence for future projects. There is a lot of learning during this process which leaves minimum room for error and a great experience. Apart from this there is a lot of responsibility that needs to be handled during the production of films which becomes difficult to manage by amateurs.

Caroline Lima informed me that you might be looking for someone to fill the production assistant position on the set of "ABC".
Caroline witnessed my work on "XYZ", a soap opera filmed and broadcasted on Zee Network. Caroline was the mentor of the program and encouraged my pursuit of production work beyond college. I feel that my experience on the set of XYZ and my degree in Film have given me the necessary background to immediately function as a valuable member of your As the Paint Dries team.
I have enclosed my resume for your review. I will try to contact you within the week to arrange an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration.
