As the title suggests, I have recently taken on a position of 2nd AC for a short film. I initially accepted the position, because I was under the impression that my friend who was offering it would be the 1ST AC. However, I just learned that this isn't really going to be the case, I am actually replacing my friend on set who is going to be out of town for the next two weeks (would have been nice to know this beforehand!), and now I am a little nervous.
I have gone to google/youtube, and have found some useful resources, but I have yet to find anything really comprehensive that rundowns everything the position entails.
Also, any good advice from people experienced in this area of the field would be more than appreciated. I have much experience in other areas of filmmaking ( mostly post, gaffer, boom operator), but this area is really a blind spot for me. (go figure...)
Thank in advance.
