Another interesting blog site I found the other day by a man called Evan Luzi. He is currently posting his own views and personal experience on a site called theblackandblue.com ( I will add the link). His posts may interest for those who are wanting to get into the filming industry particularly the camera assistance side.
The particular blog I’m posting is the ”7 unrealistic expectations of the film industry jobs”, he does have more similar types of forms on his site but I thought this one in particular was very honest and realistic and can help you guys to understand that somethings are not as easy as they look or seem BUT you shouldn’t get put off by it and give up. Instead by realizing the ups and down falls of the industry it can help you to understand more about it and be prepared just in case.
Quick summary about Evan Luzi of course if you want to find out more I will add the link below. Luzi is the founder of The Black and Blue which is basically a site which provides tips and advice on being a camera assistance. Evan Luzi himself has been working in the camera assistance industry for a long time. So for those wishing to know the ropes of this sector I’d recommend reading his stuff :D.
He has also written other topics such as ” 20 rules you should never break on set”, ” how to use a camera you never used before” and advice on freelancing.
