Do you work in TV or film production?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Disco_Gee, Feb 8, 2005.


  1. I'm an Australian and wondering about working overseas. I've studied television production and done some work in TV, but where I live it's really difficult to get a full time job in that industry (small city). I was thinking about moving to a bigger city when I thought "hell, if I'm gonna move, why not try overseas?". I was curious if any of you work in film or television production? What's the industry like where you live?

    Good luck, bro!
     
  3. Los Angeles is the film capital of the world and New York is the television capital, though a great number of both are done in each city.

    I'm sure you already knew this, but I'm afraid that's all I can help you with. I'm considering to be a film and telvision university major myself, so I've been looking into this as well (though probably not to the extent that you are).

    If you choose to come to the U.S., familiarize yourself with the local unions (SAG if you choose to act, and the filmmaker's union name slips my head right now).

    Also, check out www.entertainmentcareers.net, they have some film jobs posted there.
     
  4. After digging around the enterntainmentcareer's site, I found a list of Job Line phone numbers. I haven't called any, but this could help you out.

  5. Thanks mate! I would still love to hear from anyone who actually works in the industry...although I'm sure there are more appropriate forums me to look on I thought I would try here anyway.
