- What process did you go through to get to where you are now in the industry?

I also have the same question. I am currently enrolled in film at Drexel University in Philadelphia and I'm required to have a 6 month job or internship. I was wondering which companies an aspiring cinematographer should apply to and for what position to give me some sort of experience? A position somewhere in New York would be ideal. I would love any type of input. Thanks.
