Good info here, folks!
I have very limited experience. I worked on a music video once back in '04 for two days. It was one of the best non-paid 12hr days of my life! I was attending the Art Institute of LA back then but I left the school a quarter later due to financial reasons and I still wasn't absolutely sure what my calling was though I KNOW it has something to do with the ent. industry. Anyway, my concern is, how can I write up a resume with such limited exp? Here's what I've done and tell me if I have enough going on here:
-High school video production class (I graduated hs in 01)
-I attended a production workshop at the Museum of Television and Radio during high school
-Some video production classes in college (about 2 quaters worth)
-One weekend of working as a P.A. on a music video (they liked me but it was so long ago and I know longer have that contact info)
The last thing I did was in 04, which is a painfully long time ago and still, I think so much of being on set again. I've been stuck in a retail rut the past 5 years and it's killing me. This spring, I'm taking some production and broadcasting classes. How can I build a decent resume with such a hodgepodge of experience? You'd think I'd have more insight since I live in LA but I veered so far off path, I got lost. And yes, I have a driver's liscence, just no insurance (I'm currently not working at all). I'm not looking for someone to hold my hand, just some advice and insight on getting started again. I'm 25, time to get my butt off the ground! 30 is around the corner! Thanks everyone! You're the bestest!
