A-List mentor Crystal talks about breaking into the film industry & staying active, as well as how to have film sets reach out to you. You can leave the 9-5 and be working in the film industry sooner than you think. During dry spells like Covid 19, develop your confidence to be called when work picks up. Learn how to be headhunted.
Crystal is like a lot of people. They’ve been to film school, graduate, and aren’t able to find work.
It has nothing to do with their knowledge or motivation. The film industry is built on relationships.
Learn how to connect with people who can get you on set, and you can be in a position like Crystal where people reach out to you.
Crystal learned how to find the jobs, get them, and how to be in demand. When the pandemic ends and work resumes, Crystal will be one of the first people called. She won’t even have to go looking for the work.
Everyone starts out as a production assistant whether they’ve been to film school or not. The film industry is a hands-on learning environment, and the production assistant job allows you to work in many different departments. This is where you will meet the people who can mentor you in your craft.
You can learn a lot on the film set, where you make your connections.
