How to find a job in the cinema
In the movie "from the street"
The easiest way to get to work in a movie without a profile education is to look for vacancies for support staff. No film company can do without secretaries, managers, computer specialists, cadres. Of course, such work will be virtually indistinguishable from usual office activities, but it can become a source of useful acquaintances and connections, and, in addition, will give an idea of how the film industry works, "from within". In addition to everything, not even creative work at the film studio will allow you to learn much about the casting, vacancies, courses and special events much earlier than the rest of the people.
Another option to come into contact with the mysterious world of cinema is to take part in mass shootings. People who are willing to be present in the frame, carrying out the director's orders, are required very often. Recognition, fame and stellar fees in this case should not be counted, but as a one-time job shooting in the "crowd" are quite attractive. Search for ads on the set of actors in the "crowd" is best on the Internet: invitations appear on the representative sites of film studios, agencies for casting actors, as well as in profile groups in social networks.
Work for professionals
If you are planning to associate with the film industry your career, it makes sense to take care of obtaining a profile education. This can be acting courses, camera work, directing education or a diploma of a sound engineer. Naturally, before you go to school, you need to understand which profession is closest to you, so as not to regret the time and effort you have spent. The open days, which are conducted by educational institutions before the beginning of the season for receiving documents, can help in this.
In no case do not neglect the compilation of a portfolio. This can be amateur videos, training notes or professional work. Collect the best of them in a separate archive, which you can demonstrate to potential employers. Many film studios recruit staff not on a permanent basis, but on a specific project, in which case the examples of your works can play a decisive role in the selection of your candidacy.
Finally, in the cinema you can get from the "adjacent" profession - literary activity. If you write easily and interestingly, are able to perceive criticism and make the required changes in your text, then, perhaps, the career of a writer is a good choice for you, especially if a work that can be an interesting script is ready. Of course, in this case, you most likely will have to get a lot of refusals, but if your idea interests the film company, then you are practically provided with work in the cinema.
