About this submission

I was a Background PA on Marvel Studios' Hawkeye, which was the first production I ever worked on. As the days went on, I quickly realized the amount of work that went into maintaining and organizing these on-screen, tiny, blurry details deep in any scene. Most extras are super friendly, but some are just a pain to deal with, having the biggest egos as if they're A-list stars. All of this being handled by invisible PAs, the backbone of these massive sets. Isn't it crazy that when things go right in a movie, we tend not to notice?
