Career path advice? (Working in new york)
I didn’t go to film school and I’ve been pursuing a career instead.
My plan is to work for a video production company here in indianapolis while working on my own projects and the occasional freelance job to build up my reel. Then move out to new york city and work at a video production company while doing some headshots and real estate photos on the side.
My goal is to find out what aspect of filmmaking/photography I enjoy doing most, then pursuing that while (hopefully) not going broke.
Is there anything I need to know about living/working in new york, or problems you’ve faced with not going to film school?
Please share any advice or thoughts that you have on all of this!
