Assistant Director/ Trainee

Trying a lot to get a chance to working a film as an Assistant Director or Trainee. No hope. Nothing comes to light.

Are there any ways to get into the real world of cinema?
It looks like no one helps. :(

dude, get out while you still can. the film industry is a soul-sucking demon from the deepest depths of hell. the industry is especially harsh to beginners and is very sadistic in the way its treats people trying to break in. i would suggest that you start making your own films and not rely on anyone else to help you. all you need is a camera and a computer. the rest you can teach yourself.

if you decide to take the PA route, then just beware that you will have to sell your soul to move up the ladder. anyone that tells you differently is lying. good luck!

I know, the dream world is really a strange world... but, the dream always dragging me there.

The one thing you need to be in the film industry is common sense, part of common sense is to recognize which relationships are worth cultivating and which relationships are just exploiting you. Its an important skill if you want to move up the ranks as a PA. If you work with the wrong people there are no ranks to move up, and you might end up jaded.
