Know Your Area of Expertise

In the film industry, it is not just the actors and actresses who create a movie. There are many people who work in front and behind the camera as well. You must have at least a knowledge as to where you fit in. Are you good as a scriptwriter, a lightman, a cameraman, stuntman, cinematographer, makeup artist, video editor, extra or special effects specialist? There are many kinds of work one can get in the film industry and it is up to you to decide what kinds of job you want in the film industry.

Find Contacts

Now, if you are already in Lost Angeles and you already know what you want to do in the film industry, your next move is to get and know more contact persons. How can you do this? You can go to events, parties, screenings, receptions and film festivals. Talk to those who work on the job that you like or prefer and ask advices from them. This task needs a superb socialization skill but any ordinary people who want to have a job in film industry can do it.
