I am currently looking to get out of the retail business and into something more film-related, and I was wondering if anyone had any advice as far as where to begin. I'm not necessarily looking for a job on productions, since I don't really feel I have the knowledge for it yet, but I'm just looking for a job that I can get with few qualifications that will teach me a lot, either about equipment or something else that is useful. I was planning on looking into jobs at rental houses, but if anyone has any other suggestions, they would be much appreciated. How did some of you other guys start amassing your knowledge?

You probably should ask yourself how you want your life to be and what your motivations to be involved in filmmaking is.

Sounds to me like you'd just like to be working in the world of film. You might also want to think of what kind of job would best suit your personality and who you've been up until now.

Do you like the equipment or do you like talking about movies or do you like the glamour of it all?

Do you like regular hours?

Are you a good salesperson?

Are you in a position to work as an intern to get experience?

etc.
