I'm a young (22 years old) AC/Cinematographer working in Brasilia, Brazil, a city which has very restricted job offers, even though it its the country's capital city.
About a month ago I received a offer from a respected Executive Producer to shoot a pilot for a documentary webseries. The pilot director would be a well respected cinematographer, on his first directing gig.
I saw this as a opportunity of having a nice break into the industry here, and tried to prep as well as I could. However, I totally screwed up a couple of important shots and showed some insecurity on my relashionship with the director.
I'm now nervously waiting for the pilot to be edited to do some color grading on it, but I fear I may have blown up a big shot for my early career ...
How do you guys think I should position myself on a situation like this?
