ok so i know i already posted a similar topic already. reference my post :http://www.cinematography.com/forum2004/index.php?showtopic=7614
and thank you very much mr.mullen for your response. but i need more help.

ok ive written out my resume in paper form, i have my reel togther and thats set, but my paper resume has everything from Name,School,GPA and all that basic information, and then i have all my expierence listed in neat catagories like DP, 1st AC, Gaffer and so on....but the question is a three part question..

1. i look at templates online on where to go after i have listed all my relative experience, but i dont know what to say afterwards. What do you think? Like a section listed as "special skills"? i wouldnt even know what to write under special skills, cause from what i see on most online resumes are something along with the line of someone knowing how to use microsoft word and excelle, and i do not want to write in that i know how to use them and so on. is this where i list what cameras i know? Or what? Also do i live previous employment that has nothing to do with production? And how to have my personlity come through my resume as well?

2. What should i try and cover in my cover letter if i want just an entry level paid postion on set? or anything of the sort?

3.i also have all my references, how should i lay out my references on a seperate piece of paper? do i list there expiercence? or what they do for a living and so on?
well, i know its alot to ask, but any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!

thanks so much,
brian johnston

Many times special skills are listed in the cover letter. Generally references are listed on a seperate page: name, company, address, phone, email.

Here's a good website reference for resumes.
