Hey everyone! Hoping I can get some help here from the community. Obviously, my dream career is to be a cinematographer, for television, advertising you name it. I started my own production company out in Orange County, California and we fortunately have had some pretty nice success and have been in business the past 2 years. However it is not necessarily the route I want to go for. I don't necessarily want to be a business owner or business man, I would much rather be out in the field shooting as much as possible. I tend to travel to LA a lot to work on projects there but as of now I find myself some what lost. I don't necessarily know whom to reach out to or what to reach out to. In a perfect world it would be awesome to get a job at a production company and be a shooter for them and earn a salary. I totally understand that in most instances I will have to start from the bottom and work my way back up and thats totally fine. Anyways can anyone point me in the right direction? Down below I'll leave my reel for you guys to check out. Thanks everyone.
I have a cousin who's currently working to produce a programme (pitch an idea for them), that would be play on tv. but they (tv station) wanted to discuss the salary when he comes up with an idea they want to make. basically they want to collaborate with him. so his question is: 1) How much should he get paid if he works as a (writer/director/cinematographer), as the tv station want to discuss that with him. how much is the usual pay for ppl in that position? btw, he has graduated from university (he's experienced in making film etc, few of his films had gotten into festivals as well) 2) Do he need to sign a contract with the station for his idea? (e.g. if he wants to also put the show on his youtube account to help show his works) 3) and how to protect his idea so the tv station won't steal it from him, as he seems worried about that.
