I can’t tell you enough how much I enjoy PA’ing despite of all the hardship. I remember the first big show I ever worked on. I was crazy excited and happy to be finally able to work in Hollywood.
Yes, you work long hours but when you get to be part of an amazing crew and nice project it is worth everything. As a PA you start from to bottom, but it allows you to learn everything that is going on on set.
When I PA, I just feel alive. I enjoy every minute of it, even if I am super tired.
