General Advice for Assistants
Hey Geoff!

Any general advice for interns/studio assistants to set themself above the bell curve in terms of studio etiquette and the subtle art of being helpful on the non-technical side of things? What should an intern or assistant do when the dishes are done and there is no obvious task to take on?

Thanks so much!

Hi Ben, I can only let you know what I was told when I started, dress smart, only talk when you are talked to by an artist, I didn't by the way wash dishes, be efficient and helpful and offer your help when you feel it is needed.
