Im guessing that all proffesionals have met hundreds of runners on various productions, ive just a got a few questions id like to ask. Its not the sort of thing they teach you in film school you see.
1. What makes you take notice of a runner, a newbie? What were your 'pivotal' moments in your career ladder?
2. What, if anything, would make you want that particular runner/ cam ass/ juniour cam op to be on your next production?
3. What qualities are you looking for?
The only reason why I ask is because I've heard a mixed response accross the board, and its pretty easy to lose faith in what your doing. Some people say be reliable, get your job done, do it well, keep quiet and people will notice your hard work. Others say theres nothing better than someone full of enthusiasm and bouncing around really excited with a beaming smile on their face. And some say its just pure darn luck if you can get your break.
Any advice from you would be much obliged!
