Nicole’s Answer

Hi Noah K. I see that you posted this question a little while ago so I hope my answer to you (or others who may read this response) is still helpful.

It's difficult for me to imagine any job that doesn't provide a stable income when the person in that job does their job well and loves what they do. When that person does a good job, clients want more. When that person loves what they do, it shows in their work and clients want more. Specifically with respect to video producing, as I write my response to you in the year 2021, we can look to the burst of streaming services and platforms that currently exist to recognize that video producing has many, many layers and many, many audiences. Whether we are talking about smaller production like TikTok or YouTube or bigger productions like streaming movies and documentaries, and the fact that these programs are created all over the world, I don't think there is a shortage of available opportunities to work and do well and have a stable income in this space.

I wish you the best of luck as you find (or create) opportunities that work best for you. Enjoy your journey!

Francis’s Answer

Remember that you need to look beyond income and find out what’s best for you. If you’re passionate about whatever you decide to do your outcome will provide the stable income that you want as long as you’re willing to work for it. Instability comes with the excuse of laziness.

Francis recommends the following next steps:

Get online and do as much research as possible about the field you want to get into
Go on YouTube and watch videos about a day in the life of (possible field) you want to get into
Go online and find people who you can email and call who work in that field

Drew’s Answer

Hi there,

Being in a college film program has taught me a lot, the most important being which careers in the industry have stable incomes, and which have sort of "seasonal" incomes. Seasonal roughly meaning, only being paid when you are working on a project. Film producers are not 100% stable, but are much more stable than most positions. However, this depends on what type of producer you are. If you are a producer for a major or minor studio, your job will be much more secure than a producer who is independent and looking for scripts to make. Your position as producer is also more secure since you are technically speaking the head of the films production. If you are the primary producer, you are the leader of the film, yes the vision of the film will be left up to the director, but all decisions regarding the production will come to you. In a much shorter explanation, no position in the entertainment industry is "stable" but the role of a producer brings in a more stable income as well as a more stable work environment depending on how high in the rank of producer you are.
