You all know that I hate reels but after much consideration I ended up making one. Now, I have no idea whether is good or not but I do think that it is tailored to narrative work and maybe it would help somebody when cutting their reel! It took me 4 months to find the song I thought that represented me a bit and cutting the reel has been a great way to realise even more that I just want to shoot wonderful human stories instead of commercials. Also.. I just graduated from college (believe it or not 😂😂)
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.
