What The 1st Assistant Director Does w Billy Jones.



I wanted this 100th episode to be extra special, and by golly is it. Billy Jones is one of the most sought-after 1st AD’s in commercials because of his excellent leadership, communication and knowledge of filmmaking. Billy, and those he’s mentored, lead with a sense of serenity and control.

The 1st Assistant Director schedules & executes the day in a way that helps the Director accomplish her vision, while simultaneously helping the Producer stay on budget. The manner in which the 1st AD communicates to the crew is vital for a cohesive team effort.

Here’s a spot with Flo from Progressive that we chat about. Billy’s lead the charge for 4 years on the popular insurance campaign.

This episode is about an hour and 10 minutes of rich information.
