This question goes out to the more seasoned professionals. So when you reach a point in you career where not a lot of work is coming your way... You have to reach out to your contacts, right? The reason why I ask is that I have been pretty busy the past 2 years with work just coming to me. I've never really had to reach out, now I do. So I ask if there is any proper etiquette to abide by when contacting former line producers, UPM's, coordinators and fellow camera guys. Should I just keep it simple and say "Hey hope all is well. I am available"? How have you guys handled slow times in the past? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I get five emails or phone calls a week from past crew asking me if I have anything upcoming they can work on. It's totally fine, I don't mind at all. A quick email is all you need.

Also might be nice to invite them out for a drink or a coffee if they get free time to catch up. Make it more friendly than work, if that's the type of relationship you have or think you could have.
