Sunny thought he knew what he wanted to do for his career and spent 4 years studying to be a forensic detective. After three years on the job he realized this wasn't what we wanted to spend his life doing. He'd always loved films so signed up to SET READY™. Within a month of graduation he found a gig on a LionsGate movie. This was quickly followed by 8 months on a new Apple+ show starring Robert De Niro & Leonardo DiCaprio.
LaRissa had studied film and media at college but it didn't prepare her for how to find regular professional jobs in the industry or what was really needed for a PA. LaRissa got a job offer so quickly after graduation that she wasn't able to provide notice on her regular job so had to pass on the opportunity. Two weeks later she got her next job offer and this time she was ready to jump in. Eighteen months later and she's been working regularly ever since.
