Hi, Rochelle!

Do you know what job you'd like to have in the industry? Knowing that, we can tailor any advice to better fit your goals. :)


In general, though, getting a start in the business is about knowing people and others knowing you and what you can do. So once you know what you're after, work toward meeting those who (hopefully) can find you a place that is on the road to where you want to go. It sounds generic, and it is, but this is the basic formula for everyone in any department on set and off.

Thank you!
I want to be a Cinematographer but I can operate steadicam and dolly and I can camera op and pretty much do anything in the camera department.
