Hello All,
I'm new here so bare with me.
Having just finished my studies in Photography I am heading to Bordeaux, France to do a 1/2 year audiovisual course. I know I want to be a cinematographer but seem to have gone a rather long way round to this so I think its time for a bit of advice.

If anyone knows of anyway to get into it while I'm there I would really appreciate it. websites, groups, courses, internships in fact anything.

Cheers,

Liz

Practice a lot. Your studies in photography will hopefully prove to become very handy by having trained your eye to set up shots and acquainted you with the impact of difference in perceptions. Practice, constantly questioning your methods.

Try to find gigs on craigslist and build your reel and use the reel to get you more jobs.

Get all of the experience you can there in France. Personally, I'd love to find others interested in the French New Wave and work with them.
