Getting Started

Looking Up

Posted by Shay on September 19th, 2010 (0 comments)

In the last few months I’ve watched my peers move into positions that I’ve I’ve been eyeing for the last few years. It was hard to see that it was such an easy task to obtain such roles. It made me feel inadequate in the sense of determination and drive. It lit a slow-burning fire under my butt. I stopped looking for the ideal role with the dream productions. I started looking in the same places as everyone else. i.e. Craigslist, ProductionHub, SimplyHired, and Mandy. Well, it paid off. On Monday I will have a trial run as an editing intern for I’m not the most fashion-forward woman, but I love that they are about personal style and a person’s own styling inspiration. I’m very excited about the opportunity to edit interviews again. I miss people talking to the camera and revealing a little bit of themselves with each frame.

I’ve also been offered a position as an instructor for LMC-TV for an after school program for 4th and 5th graders. What a challenge this will be. It’s one thing to teach relatives and/or their friends how to use a camera, but to teach kids that you don’t know, to tap into how they learn, will be a whole other ballgame. Things are looking up.
