(my first music video, DOP and co-directed, sorry about poor streaming quality)
(my uni master project, wrote, diirected, shot etc etc)
Anyway, my ultimate goal is to combine resources with a few of my friends and build a small production company from the ground up. But in the mean while, my interest lies in cinematography and I would like to get as much experience as possible around professional DOPs, so I can watch, help and learn. I dont know for sure that I want to become a DOP in the long term, but I am VERY eager to learn and improve my skills at this stage in my life.
What I want to know is how do I go about getting such assistant work? Ultimately I would like to get some sort of pay, simply because I am struggling to survive as it is at the moment, let alone having time to work without pay.
Where does one go to get paid junior camera work along side experienced DOPs? Is it hard to get? And can anyone suggest particular routes I could take specifically in Melbourne Australia?
Thanks very much for any help, much appreciated..
