Hi!
I finish 6th form college in August and would like to do a gap year abroad (outside the UK) working as a runner.
I just don't know how to get involved in films. Where do I apply or what do I have to do to get in touch with directors/producers/companies etc?

I'm really interested in how it is/works on a real film set - I currently study a media diploma.

thanks in advance!

Try to do some extra work (background performer) and talk to the people on set
This is one of the ways to find information
Or apply as a PA (production assistant) to any production you can put your hands on

You have to go to LA, or Vancouver, or New York, or Toronto to be sure
There are tons of agencies there for extras
