Did you know that, in the BC film industry, Craft Services and First Aid are the same thing? Anyone working Craft Services (not catering, just crafty) has to have a high level First Aid certificate as well as the ability to serve light snacks and refreshments.

If I knew people who wrote non-au J2 fic, I would tell them this so that their fics could be all realistic...but I don't like reading non-au J2 fic, so I don't know anyone who writes it. Still, interesting to know!

As far as the instructor of my course is aware, BC is the only place where this is the case. I think that's both cool - because it's like everyone working crafty is a secret first-aid superhero, and not so cool - because you have to go through all this first aid training if you want to serve light snacks and refreshments on a film set.

Huh. The things you learn on LJ! Odd and oddly impressive.

Yeah, knowledge is power or something! Haha...I thought it was interesting anyhow. I took a little course about the BC film industry - just an overview. It was cool.

That strikes me as a rather underhanded way to obtain cheap medical services. I can't imagine they pay people all that much to serve snacks and yet they expect certification on something completely unrelated. O_o

Actually, craft services belongs to the same union as the gaffers, grips, and art department...so I'm sure the union negotiates a fair deal for them. But who knows, I'd have to track down someone in craft services and ask them.
