(Camera Dept) Help Transitioning out of Reality TV and into more Scripted.

Right now I'm ACing in Reality TV and Broadcast as a Utility. With only a webseries ACing and PAing on a Scripted TV series. If I want to do more Scripted, Do I need to start all over as a PA again or should I be able 2nd AC gigs? Is it easier to change over once you're Oping? Anyone who has experience transitioning over or any PMs, DPs who know what would make you trust a Reality AC to 2nd is greatly appreciated.

Start building relationships with people who work in the scripted world, and make sure those people know you're a capable, trustworthy camera assistant. Without those relationships in place, there's a very good chance you'll start back at the bottom. Good luck!
