You need to put yourself out there and apply everywhere for everything.
For me, I was fortunate enough to work for some local TV and had an internship at a documentary company while I was in college. After college, I applied everywhere, and ended up getting a job at ABC in NYC. Another big point is to network, network, network. Get a LinkedIn account and start finding people on it that way. Not sure where you're located, but if there's conventions or festivals, go to those. If you can volunteer or work at a film festival, do that too.
Also, do some of your own work and put it on YouTube or Vimeo. Just start making content. People will start to see it. Plus, the more experience you have, the better you'll become. Don't be afraid to not get the job or be told you're not good enough. You will get something that'll be a right fit at some point!
Looks great! Good colorization, variation of shots. The only thing is that you either need to bring the speaker's volume up or the music down on the parts where he's talking. The two sounds seem to be competing with each other at times and we should be able to hear the speaker's voice clearly the whole time since the story is about him. Other than that, really good.
Hey Chelsea - I would just put your name and those 3 things that you listed as your specialty. Then obviously all your contact info (email, phone, website).
I think a good example would be to show Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It's out of order and the cinematography is fantastic.
In the beginning while the guy is driving all the lights are on in the car. Now, obviously you needed that to light him, but no one drives with all those lights on. Try getting a small LED you can place on the dashboard at the subject's face, acting like headlights coming in the opposite direction.
Watch for your reflection in things! You're visible in the doorknob CU around 1:55.
Jump cuts are good and effective here, but make sure to keep the camera in place while doing it, so it's not jarring in the movement of the camera.
Check your audio levels throughout. The music is all higher than the guy speaking. I would just make it equal volumes since usually both aren't at the same time.
Good variation on shots. Funny story. Are you influenced by Wes Anderson?
Watch the color in the first scene with the guy playing guitar from the front vs when he sits back. Colorization changes a bit there when the camera changes position on the cut.
I love a black screen as a transition, but I think it was held for too long (the couple without sound). Maybe just 2-3 seconds, so the audience's mind stays on "what's going to happen" instead of "what's happening with the black?"
Make sure the audio transitions are a little smoother in-between different angles of the same scene (ex: around 8:15). Maybe pop in a little room tone.
Overall really nice. Great variation of shots. Good ending to the story.
