Hello all, I'm an aspiring film director/producer, entering UTA next year as a freshman. I constantly hear that you need to be in LA for the film business, or that everyone ends up in LA, and I wanted to know a little more about this. My question is, why? Why do you need to be in LA? I lived there when I was younger, and all that I remember was that the cheapest dirthole was still more expensive than my modest house in Austin. Also, I've had friends tell me how strict LA is on permits, whereas in Austin, I was shooting on the street w/o any permits and a police cab came up and offered to buy us lunch. So...why LA? I ask this question because Austin's film program is offering students internships at select studios in LA (such as Paramount and Lionsgate) as well as in NYC (but I believe that's more for TV). However, is this something worth looking into? To be honest, and I don't know everything about the industry so this is all coming from interviews/workshops, but the films I want to make I could make probably shoot here in Texas. I would be honored to hear what you guys think and what your experience is with this. P.S.: Money is a HUGE factor for me. Edit: added some line spacing.
Hey cinematographers, I'd love your critique and feedback on my work! As I approach graduation, I'm hoping to fine tune my body of work and learn from every source possible to help me become the best visual storyteller I can possibly be.
