Networking Events!

Networking is a huge part on how you will gain more gigs, more work, and it basically equates to you getting your pay check. It can be very hard for a lot of people getting the hang of it. But it’s not as easy as just throwing your business card in someone’s face, (please don’t ever do this!) it’s so much more than that. You have to make a connection with a person!

Networking tips:

  • Volunteer at film festivals.
  • If the Crew is going out for drinks after something you worked on – GO OUT WITH THEM. (No – this doesn’t mean you have to drink)
  • Is a short film you worked on having a screening? GO!
  • Help that friend make their small short film project.
  • Join film groups on Facebook.
  • Talk to people! Don’t talk at them about what you need/want in your career. Have a normal conversation.
  • Do a great job while you’re on set! Start building a good rep for yourself.  The better you are at your job the more the people on that set will hire you for the next gig.
  • Bring those business cards! But that doesn’t mean going up to random people and throwing a business card in their face then walking away. (I’ve seen this happen!) That’s the fast track for your card going straight to the floor, and not in their pocket.  The words: “I need to get your info” is your cue to give your card to them. Ya gotta be smooth with it!
