Yup Mandrake, it's in the end that the things work themselves out in. Surely you're not at the end yet.

51 years old, better magicians than I were dead by this point!

This lists every major project going on in New York and has job listings as well. Talk to the production managers on some of these films about working as a production assistant. If you're willing to work for free once and you're a good worker, you'll most likely get called to work again for pay.

...and good luck! (Seriously dude, I wanna see your name in credits! And I read credits too, so I'll know!)

Thanks for the link Claymation. Mandrake - I'm glad you read the credits. More people should do the same.

I am actually starting a full-time job on Tuesday with B&H Photo in the city. I'll be a junior technical writer for pro audio equipment for their website.

It's not my dream job, or something I think I'll do for the next 20 years, but it's a full-time paid gig, which is what I need most at this time.

I was also quite surprised to get offered a job in under 3 weeks of moving up here. I figured I'd have to wind up manning the register at Target just to get a little cash flow going.

I'll still be looking to do free/cheap film work on evenings and weekends.

Ah, exciting times!

I love B&H Photo!!! That's a great gig!


Kevin...you will also have contact with all the finest and latest film equipment in the world. Groovy! Place is crawling with filmmakers. Well done!

Not to mention that insanely cool mechanical basket system they use...worth a visit just to watch that! It's a true wonder.

Yep, I've been a long-time B&H customer. I love going through the retail space, it's so massive!

My job is in the office area of B&H, which is a couple blocks over from the retail store. So the fun gadgets aren't right at my fingertips during my daily duties.

I suppose that's good though. The temptation to hand them my check back every payday won't be as great.
