How To Find Work as a Freelancer?
Hello NFS Community,
I'm looking for some advice on finding work as a freelance Cinematographer. First I'll layout the process so far and issues I'm finding. I'm around the Atlanta area for reference
The sources I use to find work are as follows: ProductionHub.com, Mandy.com (Now filmandtvpro.com), Staffmeup.com, Thumbtack, and Craigslist local ads. I have also sent my reel to local production houses in hopes off drumming up some work from them.
Now I have only been at this about 2 months full-time, but it's like the work just dried up. People stopped contacting me, I don't get replies to follow ups, and none of the listings I find ever pan out.
What is some advice from you seasoned pros out there on finding and keeping some what steady work as a Cinematographer or Filmmaker? I appreciate any and all feedback.
