What do you dislike about your position?
Honestly, this will always be one of the most memorable
experiences of my career! The only negative aspect I can
think of is that ATs have not been exposed to the film industry.
I would love for ATs to read this and be motivated to seek out
opportunities in the film industry.
What advice do you have about your practice setting
for a young AT looking at this setting?
The film industry utilizes unionized workers. Each state or
region has its own governing bodies, or local unions. For
example, Georgia’s film production local is called IASTE
479. Its website lists production locals by state (i.e., Florida
is IATSE 477). If you click on a specific state, it will take you
to that respective state’s “official website of professional
film workers.” By navigating to each website, you can find
application information and the contact page.
As of now, the medical aspect of the film industry is heavily
populated by EMTs. They have a tight grip on the industry;
however, I believe ATs should make a push and become more
involved. This can include movies, TV shows, concerts, etc.
Athletic training has opened up so many doors and
opportunities for me. I hope this encourages ATs to look
outside the box and pursue a variety of settings to gain
