In Anything and Everything

1

Atlanta has a pretty healthy Indie scene.

2

Getting to work in the film industry is all about luck, But top filmmakers say they've made their own.

3

An all-access pass doesn't guarantee you access. *Producer is the highest level & even still it's all about when you get there. So Arrive early.

4

Cinematography begins with the lens, and there isn't a real difference between the title
cinematographer and Director of Photography
except for the clout…

5

Speak up on set and in post, no matter what your rank is. If you're afraid to point out a mistake you're hurting the media you're creating.

6

BONUS!

Apparently, the only thing Atlanta truly lacks (compared to other Film hubs) is a bulk beauty supply store for the booming industry. Can someone get on that? Guardians of the Galaxy was waiting to get properly glammed -up.
