As a production assistant, you are part of a dynamic team working on film, television, digital media, and/or theatrical productions, and generally serving in an entry-level administrative role. 65% of current production assistants say they are happy with the salary they receive.
Geographical location, education, and level or length of experience may slightly impact salary rates. But because many people become production assistants as a way to enter the industry and in the hope of eventually becoming a producer or director, the average salary of $82,363.79 generally doesn't lead to a significantly higher salary with experience. Notable salary and wage increases typically come with industry advancement.
Production assistants generally aren't required to have a university degree, though having a degree in a field such as theater, film and television, or digital media production could give you an advantage when it comes to getting hired, as well as a slight increase in salary or hourly wages.
Production assistants can perform duties that range from helping to organize and coordinate wardrobe to copying and distributing scripts or cleaning up a location after wrap. Additional licenses or certifications, along with previous administrative, departmental, or support position experiences, are helpful. Projects with larger budgets may pay more, as non-salaried production assistants' wages are often determined by the project budget.
An understanding of how production works, experience specific to a department, or organizational leadership skills can all help you negotiate a higher salary as a production assistant — especially if you hold certifications or degrees, or have specialized skills such as prop-building or set dressing.
When interviewing to work as a production assistant for a television, news, or digital media company, researching previously-reported salaries is a must in order to negotiate a salary that works for you. This is a little more challenging for on-location, per-project production assistant jobs, as your wages will depend on the overall project budget, but for full-time, salaried positions, you can research current production assistant jobs.
