StudioSix is looking for a Production Assistant with field experience to assist on various ongoing series and specials. The P.A. will assist with a full range of production and post, including travel & shoot planning, booking guests, preparing shoot itineraries and schedules, logging media footage, compiling releases, making phone calls, and assisting in shutdown. Looking for someone who is comfortable working on multiple productions at the same time.

Have these positions been filled or are you still looking?
I'm not sure. No one's been announced yet as filling the positions, but there was a round of interviews a week or so ago. The best way to tell is to go to wgbh.org/jobs and look for them; that's the way you apply, too.
