I've had several shoots where we got our gear (HD, video and film packages) from B&S and they were fine. Same goes for their grip-side.

I may have an opportunity to internship and continue onto a 2yr apprenticeship position with them. It'd be doing camera and lens technician stuff. What i really want to be is a DP I feel like this may stunt me though. BUT it could also be a great great great opportunity to have a job, be able to network and do things on the side... what do yo guys think?

Hello Sam,

As a former 30 year camera/optical tech. I would say the knowledge you would gain from such work would be of great benefit to a career in the industry.

Exactly right. B&S is a fine old company, they've been around even longer than I have. The most important thing in this business is to get to know people. In the old days, guys used to hang out at the rental houses just to make the kind of contacts you'll be making. Plus you get paid, such a deal. Go for it.
