Your Daily Link to Film Jobs!
Always wanted to break into television or film? Perhaps you would rather make a career on the film production side
The film industry is full of career paths marked by fierce competition and long hours, but that doesn't prevent aspiring filmmakers from dreaming of big screen blockbusters. So how do you avoid filmmaking career pitfalls and end up on top in Hollywood?
1. If you are interested in filmmaking, broadcasting, digital media and other programs related to film, video and television, check out a film school that is right for you.
2. Keep things simple. When you're working with crews of people, things get complicated quickly. Often you end up taking orders from multiple people�all of whom are ambitious individuals with their own opinions about how things should be running. Know who you should be taking orders from, be able to communicate well, and follow directions.
3. Check your ego at the door. It doesn't matter if you're really talented in your field�you won't get the opportunity to show anyone if you're not ready to work as part of a team. It takes an army to make a good film, not an individual.
4. Good connections inside the industry don't hurt, but not many people have them, and if you're tenacious and talented, you don't really need them. However, you do need experience. I'd say that's the most important asset you could flash at any potential employer�internships or past work experience.
5. Be willing to learn. Education doesn't stop with school. The film industry is constantly developing technologically, and the people who are going to succeed will be the ones willing to adapt and learn new technology and techniques.
