I have a question to the lot of you seasoned professionals.

I'm a young guy, who's very interested in this profession and I don't really live in Cali yet. What would some of you recommend to me as far as working/training/gaining experience in a city that isn't Hollywood?

I was thinking applying for internships to TV studios here, like NBC, FOX, and Weta specifically asking to be on the Camera team. Before I invest any time in such a venture, do you think that is a good idea in itself, and is something plausible?

I'm not a total noob to shooting, or editing, but I'm definitely not a camera whiz either (obviously). I really want to understand how to operate a camera to the best of my abilities, etc..

I've taken a video production class at my local university, GMU..but realized I'm not going to pursue the degree at this school as it is just not serious enough there.

I'm thinking going the intern route at various tv studios as a first thought - but if anybody genuinely wants to suggest something else please do.
