      expect to hurry up and wait. From my experience in this type of work they
      want it yesterday then you wait for hours sometimes before anything happens.
      It is fun but it is exhausting and as far as creativity goes there is not
      much satisfaction there. You are the runner as an assistant, you will
      probably have to do alot of running around, placing wardrobe in rooms,
      picking up after the day is done and maybe laundering. I dont know what
      your particular shoot will be like but I would say as I said in the
      beginning expect to hurry up and wait alot! But pay is decent and usually
      you have meals on set which you dont have to pay for.
