  1. Hey guys, I hope this is the right category to post this. Next year (june) I'm required to get an internship in order to graduate from film school. However, I'd like to get one in another country (US, Canada, UK mainly) because we don't have too much of an industry here. My dream internship would be to get into a major studio (Universal, WB, Pinewood...). I'll take any job, especially something that has to do with the camera department. I want to be on a film crew (no TV series, office jobs) preferably of a big, blockbuster film. I want my name to appear somewhere in the big screen. The only problem is I don't know where to start. I've checked their internships/opportunities but nothing seems clear enough. Also, some studios don't offer jobs as a crew member, as they say each film's producers hire their own crew. It would be highly appreciated if anyone could give me tips on how to get in a studio, or accept me into your next film's crew ;) haha
  2. 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.
  3. Hi everybody, I'm wondering if anybody has some advise on how an AC resume should look like. Should I put my education and formative experiences? Should I only put the filmography and only the more importants jobs or should I put students films too? Any other advise is more than welcome! Thanks in advance!

  6. Hi guys I graduated last week andnow I'm looking for a master in europe. Unfortunately tuition fees for an MA in cinematography are really expensive more than 10 thousand euros. Instead fees for Brighton Film School and Baltic Film and Media School are affordable. Anyone knows something about them? would you recommend them? Do you know other schools which provide a good education? Thanks in advance

  9. TL;DR: how do I Los Angeles? I know there's a few threads on this topic already, but it looks as though they're a year old or so, and I'd like to take the temperature of LA locals re: the current and future prospects for younger people in the film industry. There's an awful lot of cynicism out there. I have about five years of experience freelancing in the industry, but it's hard to imagine getting much further in my career without moving. It just so happens that my current SO is interviewing for a job in LA (which may be her own "big break"), and I'm contemplating moving with her... I'm not going to sacrifice my career to stay with her, but moving to LA hardly seems like the worst idea for someone who wants to be a director of photography and filmmaker--especially considering that I'd have a SO with a job in an unrelated industry to mooch on while I get established. I have a few friends out there as well who seem to be doing alright, and could at least make first introductions. I also know people who have moved back or to satellite cities after a few years in LA because they couldn't get out of low rent indies with abusive labor practices. I've read that while the jobs are still there, the day rates are plummeting (I was shocked at how little my friends said they made on some shows--less than I get for a day on a light corporate gig). I hope we can refrain from a flame war about tax incentives and runaway productions--just the facts!
  10. Hello everyone, As the title says, I'm a gaffer from Germany, 22 years old and currently train as an event technician at the WDR studios in Cologne, Germany. Event technician is the official term for the apprenticeship, which includes studio work as well as live situations such as concerts and parties. However, most of the time I work as a gaffer in a studio environment. As far as i know the dual education system in Germany is somewhat different to most other countries, so here you can get further information, in case its important. So my contract will end in about a year and i feel like I need a new challenge, see how other people work in order to advance my skills. Anyway, what I wanted to ask you is, whats the best way to get this going? I know that I need to find a job in advance to get a working visa. How do you see that chances of finding an employer who is willing to put himself in the struggle of bringing me to the country? Whats the best platform to look for jobs? I'm glad for every piece of information on this topic as I feel kinda lost in the jungle the breaks open when you google for media jobs. Thanks in advance! Johannes
  11. Hello there, I am a freshmen undergrad in film school and recently got the position to work as a DIT and editor on an upcoming short. The short is a collaborative effort of one of our school clubs where we managed to get together to funds to shoot with an epic. During the shoot, which is coming up this spring, I am to apprentice a professional DIT and learn the ropes. Eventually taking over once I am comfortable with the procedures and so forth. I am also going to be grading and editing the RAW footage. So prior to when my apprenticeship begins I would like to have a firm knowledge of what I am getting myself into. So I was curious if anyone had any articles regarding the DIT workflow and responsibilities of the job. Also I am looking for any articles and info on grading RAW footage which I have experience with in terms of stills, and the RAW editing workflow. Despite going into this without any experience in being a DIT, I am a very adequate editor in Final Cut and Premier. Just to let you know I’m not entirely unqualified for the position. Summary: I am looking for all information, advice, and articles regarding being a DIT to a RED Epic, and grading and editing RAW footage. Thanks!

  15. Giving a job description of a cinematographer is a bit difficult because the term "cinematographer" can apply to various jobs ranging from camera operator to director of photography. Most often, the term refers to the director of photography, or top cinematographer on a film, so let's focus on that. Basically, cinematography means bringing a story to life visually. The word's Greek roots are kinema (movement) and graph (writing). Bringing movement to screenwriter's script requires more than simply shooting photos or video of a scene. The primary cinematographer, or director of photography, works with the film's director to capture the underlying story in a way that will captivate the movie audience. Camera operators and cinematographers for specific scenes or types of scenes work to fulfill the overall vision. But while that's a general description, the director of photography also has a lot of specific responsibilities related to making a movie. In fact, the cinematographer's job starts before a single frame of film is shot. Preproduction The cinematographer discusses the director's vision for the film with him, both overall and scene by scene. Based on that, the cinematographer determines what's needed for each scene, within budget, and hires the camera crew, arranges for equipment and buys film and supplies. The cinematographer also works with other departments, like sound and lighting, to coordinate production needs. Production The cinematographer coordinates the crew and works with the director to make sure each scene is set up and shot to match the director's vision of the story. For each scene, the cinematographer decides on the best combination of cameras, filters and lenses, as well as where the cameras will be placed, what the lighting should be and when the scene will be shot. On large films, several cinematographers may oversee different camera set-ups. Others may serve as second-unit directors, shooting background or locations without the actors. The director of photography oversees them all, often also managing the photography budget. Postproduction The cinematographer works with the processing lab to make sure the film retains the color and mood that he and the director wanted. The cinematographer also reviews dailies, as well as the first and final print of the film. Being a critical eye and part of quality control is important throughout postproduction Being a cinematographer requires special skills.
