  1. Hello! My name is William, and my question is a simple one, albeit over-asked. How does one get into the industry? I mean this in the most general sense. Should I start low and work my way up? Should I just buy a bunch of sound gear and pray? There seems to be so many paths to take, but I am unsure and honestly scared. I don't know what I'm doing and would love to hear what other people have done, and what's worked and what hasn't. My Current "Plan" My current plan is to move to Georga in the coming year, specifically Atlanta. I thought it would be best to try contacting people that are already in the industry, asking if they need any help with a Sound PA or Utility. I am willing to wrap as many cables and get them as much coffee as necessary. Hopefully, one day I can buy some of my own gear and start actually working as a Mixer/ENG on various productions. I don't see that as happening for a long time though. Does this sound like a good plan? Or would it unprofessional to just contact people already in the industry asking for work? What do you suggest I change about my current "plan of attack"? Thanks for your help! ~William Hirsch
  2. Experience: Boom Op on a Dos Equis ad for their "Feast Of The Brave" campaign. Used a Sennheiser shotgun mic, boom, and Zoom H4N recorder (June 2011) Audio Assistant/Boom Op on an indie feature, will be shooting Oct 15-Oct 26 2012 10 years experience as a professional musician, recording and engineering many projects, including this song: http://www.spinner.com/2010/01/16/midnight-masses-there-goes-our-man-free-mp3-of-the-day/ As I don't have much Film/TV-specific experience or my own gear (yet), I am willing to work for free or cheap to build up my reel/resume, get references, and meet people. I am very reliable and hard-working, and I have a lot of knowledge and experience with audio, mic placement, recording, learning to use new interfaces and gear, etc. I can provide references to the people I've worked with. I'll be available after Nov 18, when I return from a tour with my band. Please get in touch! Thanks, Eric ericerodgers@yahoo.com 347-834-2490
