First day on set with ScreenSkills

Creative Industries
Find out what it’s like to work on a film or TV set in this 360-degree video. The third assistant director (3rd AD) shows you around a working sound stage, introducing you to the sound, camera and lighting, art, costume, make-up and hair departments and the video village.

For best results view this full screen on YouTube. If the picture quality isn't sharp enough, you might be able to improve it by adjusting the settings.

The video was commissioned by ScreenSkills, supported by the BFI awarding National Lottery funds, to help demonstrate how a film or TV set works to inspire the next generation of behind-the-camera professionals. 

You can also enjoy the First day on set as a free VR experience for the Oculus Rift and Go.
