Hi Everyone, Im a 2nd year film student studying in the UK who's new to the forum but very interested in going down the lighting route and eventually becoming a Gaffer or DP for Film and T.V. My Main Question is about weather you guys believe its essential for Lighting Trainees or Sparks to have a Electricians Qualification to take on jobs in the industry? Especially when you first start out? and if possible I was also hoping to hear how you guys started your careers? and what you would suggest my first steps should be to go down this route? Im aware there are different laws and practices in different countries about what might be needed for the different roles and would be interested to hear about the different countries views on this topic. I look forward to your replies!
