I probably did a stupid thing, I moved to Los Angeles, now what?
The title should sum it up, but I finally made the move to Los Angeles. I'm originally from a small town in the Midwest, but had just finished a film degree in Phoenix, Arizona and had been making a living over the last year for the first time as a freelance videographer. I finally had enough saved up to afford splitting a studio with a friend next to downtown Los Angeles, and now here I am, broke, anxiety ridden, but excited and optimistic about the new opportunities surrounding me.
So what should I do now? My passion is in documentaries, but I love film in general. What are some tips and tricks on surviving in this monstrous city? I assume a lot of other filmmakers on here have made a similar move, how did it go for you? What did you learn? What good decisions or mistakes did you all make?
