I am about to graduate from film school in april 09. I have dp'd on many short hdv films and on a 16mm short. We are going into our final project which will be shot on 35mm next month. I am currently living in florida but plan to move to los angeles, ny, or wherever I can find jobs. What are the best ways to get my foot in the door? Im willing to do any job just to be on set. I learned more from my last 16mm project in that one week than I have in the last year and a half at school. I really want to to get my foot in the door and start paying my dues to eventually get where I want.

Thanks,
-nick
