This could be enormously helpful if people go. A lot of people at the school stigmatize P.A.ing but the fact of the matter is that's exactly what they're likely going to be doing when they leave school, yes even the top Directors, DPs, and Producers of the school. Also P.A.ing is something to take pride in. You gotta be a good P.A. before you can be a good anything else. And wrapping your head around set etiquette and hierarchy before leaving school will save your skin later. And for the record P.A.ing on a film school set is not the same as P.A.ing on a million dollar commercial, a cable tv show, or tier I and up feature. I will certainly attend if I'm available.
