What comes to mind when you hear “Boot Camp?” Lights, camera, action and pie? That’s certainly what it means for the GOT THIS! production team.

Last weekend, Saturday Afternoon regulars and newcomers assembled in Philadelphia for a crash course in how to work on a movie set. As part of SAP’s Learning Space initiative, local college interns will work on the upcoming short as camera assistants, script supervisors, behind the scenes photographers, and more.

SAP veteran director of photography (DP), John M. White conducted a fun workshop and practice shoot. It was a great opportunity for the team to get acquainted, learn the equipment, and get a taste of what will happen on set.

And since the Boot Camp took place on 3.14.15, there was pie! All in all, not a bad way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon. Look through the photos below:
