  1. Hey Guys, Im curious on getting seen or how to get in contact with agencies? How have you guys gotten your agents? I have done a lot of research and there is not much info about how DP's get agents. Do DP's email agencies their reel and make the first contact or do they come find you? What is everyones experience with this. I want to contact agencies myself but dont know if this is the right path. Thanks for you advice!
  2. Okay, guys and gals!! I have a few questions that hopefully the wealth of knowledge here can answer. First a disclaimer, (I actually like disclaimers for some weird reason): My goal is to lens commercials, films (short or long format), and the occasional music video. If given the opportunity, of course. I currently work for a production house that does very little in all those categories. So in the best interest of my personal goals I'd like to submit the following questions.: Is there a benefit to aligning oneself (as a cameraman/cinematographer/DP) to an ad agency? What are the challenges that arise when you build up a narrative reel, when trying to get into commercials and other types of work? Is it easy to get pigeon-holed as a “Insert Category” DP, or is that something that one unconsciously gravitates to? If most of your current work is primarily short form narrative; How do you branch out into other categories of work? There have been several examples of DPs rising through the camera department ranks, getting the nod for commercial work, narrative, etc., or gaining an opportunity for narrative work through documentary work; how often does that happen nowadays? Is there something that I may be missing as far as learning about how the political climate of our craft is going? Does that vary from region to region? If so, what is it like currently in Texas? (I live in Houston, where the bulk of the work is news and oil & gas.) Should I talk with a Union Rep. to figure out how I can better align myself with shooting productions in the aforementioned categories? There are only a handful of people in my state, that have any dealings with unions, and I'm wondering; Would it be better to move to another city, and start all over with the title “aspiring DP”? I'm sure I'll have a ton of other questions, but these are the most nagging to me!! Thank you in advance for your epic help!!!
  3. This may be the silliest post ever but here goes... I was recently approached by a very successful Director and asked if I would be interested in shooting his next film. I've only been shooting for three years. I have shot broadcast commercials and brand videos mostly, never a feature. Part of me couldn't image why this question was asked of me in the first place. The project is absolutely NOT a small budget independent film. I guess he sees something he really likes, but how the heck could I know if I'm ready for something like that? Obviously a wide open topic and there's limited information I can give out but... Insights welcome.
  4. Hey guys, just thought it would be great to hear from all you out there, what's your favourite thing about working in film industry? What's been the best thing you have worked on? Cheers, Jordan ^_^
  5. Hello, I found these two articles about the Top Ten Schools in UK & US. I'm mostly agreed but I wonder what this type of ranking can worth? I mean is this accurate? I know finding an University can be confusing.I know I'm confused myself right now looking for mine. But I wonder.... So In you opinion What are the best school and do you think, this kind of ranking is trustable? Here the links http://talesfromtheargo.com/uk-film-schools/ http://talesfromtheargo.com/top-us-film-schools/ Cheers Guys PS : I read a lot of Bad reviews on MET Film School but apparently now it's recommended by NFTS??? https://nfts.co.uk/sign-me-up/pathways-nfts What do you think of that as well?

  7. I was wondering what you think contributes to making a cinematographer better than average, and even truly great. In terms of not only the success of his career, but also his craft, self discipline and general habits we might learn from. Roger Deakins, Emmanuel Lubezki, Gordon Willis come to mind, but also anyone you personally admire who might not be as well known. Share your thoughts, and also feel free to post about any time you met a cinematographer who you feel is a role model to you, and what kind of impression they made.
