Transcript

Based on my personal observations, I've come up with three classifications of experiences. We have Firstly, those who have low film theory and practical skills, such as people who are coming in from another industry. I've never shot or done film before. People will fair amount of film knowledge and practical skills. And then we students, new independent filmmakers and such. And lastly, those who have high film theory and practical skills, essentially those who have been in the industry at least two years or so, but for some reason, just never managed to truly break into the Hollywood film industry.

Tier One, two, and three. So for those of you who aren't tier one wishes to low to no theory and practical experience, you would first need to get smart and stay current with your learning. You can do this by either taking part in courses or getting updated information from reputable online resources on the film industry. Practically however, you need to get out and just meet people. Go out there, take that first step and just meet as many people as you can through meetups on an association And so on. And of course, but at the very least, start getting involved in projects.

You can do this by investing in some basic film equipment and start planning for an actual good project you can add to your resume. The trick is to take it seriously and professionally treats your learning experience and production reply professionalism, as if it is high caliber content, and you're set. Now, for those of you who are coming from another industry, such as finance or construction, let's say, you would also use dimension solutions. But in addition to that, you could also leverage your current industry experiences to get your foot in the door, if that aligns with your passion. For example, if you are really good at finance, consider getting in by becoming a production accountant for film executives or producers. For those of you who are in tier two or three, I'm assuming you're either film student graduating or not, or new independent filmmakers to the scene or just working on a lot of indie projects.

You can elevate your experience level By applying the same solutions but with an added twist, that is stop being more selective about the jobs you accept. stop accepting indie or mediocre jobs, refine and polish your portfolio with newer, better and bigger experiences. And if you want tier three, consider leveraging your most heavily invested experiences and use that to get the next better and bigger job.
