One of the top concerns beginners have when starting out in the film industry is how to get film jobs without looking desperate. They want something and they’re nervous about asking for it. It’s a common worry, one people could easily overcome.
The main issue people have is that they are in their own heads, thinking about themselves. When we’re stuck in our heads, it affects our entire personality. We give off the wrong vibes, and that affects our relationships. In a business that thrives on relationships, we want to do everything to build the bonds that keep us working.
We’ve all been beginners at some point, and most of us have had these concerns. We get stuck in our heads, worried about how we look and giving off the wrong vibes.
When you get out of our heads and see reality. You aren’t just working on set, you are working with people with the same interests as you.
One of the great things about working in the film industry is all of the relationships you can make. You can work with people like you every single day.
Many industry insiders are hard working and fun to be with.
