    Hey Joey,

    Thanks for writing a post about my site and for giving it such great compliments! I actually remember starting out The Black and Blue and searching for “camera assistant” on google and coming across your site quite often, so it’s cool that I now find myself mentioned on it 🙂

    Keep up the good work!

    Best regards,
    Camera Assistant and Editor of The Black and Blue

    Thanks Evan! Your blog is way better than my AC posts of info gathered from film school sets.

    You’re welcome! I actually found your AC posts helpful when I was first starting out! You were one of the few who had written about AC work at that time without assuming people knew everything.
