I’d like to start by saying hey and thank you for taking the time to read my post. I’m a long time reader and lover of this site and figured it was a good time to ask for some advice. I am a recent graduate who moved out to the Atlanta area within the last year. My intentions were to work in an area where I could comfortably start as a Digital Utility and move forward as I learned more, however it seems to have come to my attention that a lot of the camera crews here seem to be being brought over from wherever the Cinematographer is from. In most of my cases has been from LA. It’s come to the decision making point of if I will end up chasing the camera path or if I will work my way through the electric path where the work seems more plentiful.
I would like to take this time to ask the forum member and Cinematographers their opinion on a decision such as this, and for any advice that my push towards the right direction. Thank you for everything.
