Worth it to join 600? - Los Angeles

21 October 2018 - 09:07 PM

Hey Everyone-

 

I'm a camera operator and occasional DOP new to the Los Angeles area (less than a month in) after working for the past several years in Tennessee as a non union operator.

 

I've begun the process of submitting my non union days to Contract Services for the Industry Experience Roster, but I was curious about the experience of everyone here as far as whether or not it's worth joining. As it is now, I have limited connections in the union world (hopefully I'll gain more soon).

 

Let's say I join: do you think new avenues will open up for me being a member of 600 as I gain new connections, or is it better to continue on the nonunion route for the forseeable future?

 

If you're a working member of 600 now, how long did you wait to join? Did it make a big difference in your career being a member?

 

Thanks for your time, and I'd love any insight anyone can offer. 

 

--Also, in case anyone cares, my experience has been in mainly these true crime documentary shows (Tennessee is a mecca for those) both filming as a DOP and camera operator in the field interview side and the re-enactment side (Which operate like filming a low budget movie every week).


Reopening account 9 years later. Changing name?

Hey Everyone-

 

I decided to sign up for an account on this site - and it turned out I already had an account! Nine years ago I signed up to make one post about whether it would be worth going to Full Sail, which luckily I did not, and still ended up becoming a professional without it.

 

Anyway, how should I change my username to my real name, which is Jared Hagemann, as I see that's how usernames are supposed to be presented. 

 

Also, what was I thinking of with this username? Yeesh!
