Hi All, as it states in the topic, I've been struggling to figure out my way to go from commercial world to TV/Movie world and I need your advice! I've started to work on commercials as a PA about 6 years ago, went to a film school, and climbed up the ladder long enough to purchase AC gears and gadgetries and been getting mid-high range commercials as a 1st AC enough to make a living, but I always knew in the corner of my head that I wanted to go work on feature films or single camera TV shows. After digging through production gig websites and sending usual emails to the colleagues I know, I've realized all my contacts are mainly commercial and I really don't know anyone who works in a narrative filming world. I want to make a critical decision by this year, but I honestly don't know where to begin. I've even thought of starting from the bottom by abandoning all my AC gears and go work on narrative shows as a PA to climb up the ladder again. Ideally I would love to get a Camera PA position on features for starters, but I don't know where one can go and get positions like that. So please, the experts in cinematography.com, what are your advices? Any kind of guides would help. I deeply appreciate your comments.
Hi everyone! I am a 25 years Italian boy just arrived in London and I am very interested in working in the field of cinematography. After my cinema university studies I have been working for two years as editor, best boy, camera assistant and operator. These experiences helped me understand what I really want to do, which is working in the camera department. Actually, I am still learning to acquire new knowledge and experience with an aim to become, some day, a professional DP which is my dream. I have decided to move to London as it is the most interesting and dynamic European staging post, concerning cinema and video-making. I think that is a more professional environment, in Italy now the situation in awful! So I'm looking for someone so kind to keep me as a intern! I'm very interested to learn film workflow (and digital too) with a specific attention to movies. I've tried with rental companies but they are already busy… now I'm studying some books and manuals deal with the job of AC, cinematography, image composition etc… and I'm trying to improve my english too! So I'm here! If someone is interested please leave me a message. Thank you! Filippo
Hello , I'm looking to work with a DP or Cinematographer that works on film in Los Angeles for free to learn more in the field. I have been working in the film industry for 11 years. I started in NYC and been living in Los Angeles for the last 3. I'm looking to learn more on film and get more experience. I have worked on digital a lot, RED, ARRI ALEXIA, Blackmagic, Canon 5D and 7D, Sony and worked on super 16mm in the past. I was lucky enough to work on 35mm twice in NYC 8 years ago. I want to learn more and get more back into film and looking to meet new people with that experience. Thanks and I really love reading the blogs on here and love making films. Experienced in loading, building, and AC work, also operating.
