How to manage time?

I currently studying Motion Picture Arts and I barely get to sleep because of my homework, I also daily vlog (it's like a video diary) and I also do weekly videos on youtube, I'm very invested in everything I do, but I don't get much free time. My sister tells me to stop at least daily vlogging, but I've done it for 3 years and I feel like I can't stop now. Do you have any tips on how to manage my time better? Thanks #time-management #editing #youtube #video-production #video-editing #post-production #vlog

What languages should I learn next?

I'm aware that knowing more than one language can get you unique opportunities, my mother language is Portuguese and I also speak English. I was wondering what language should I learn now. I thought about French since I'm living in Canada, but German is another language that people say it's important to learn. Thanks. #international #language #film-production #foreign-languages #editing #post-production #german

What is a good entry level job in Post-Production?

I'm a film student interested in editing and I wanted to get a summer job. Most people say that 1st Assistant Editor is an entry level job, but it actually requires a lot of skill to be the 1st assistant and still being on my first at university I don't think I'm ready for such responsibility. What are other entry level jobs in Post-Production? #film #film-production #editing #summer-jobs #video-editing #post-production

How to find summer jobs?

I want to be an Editor and I wanted to get a job as a trainee or second assistant during the summer so I could gain more experience and get to know more people in the industry. But I can't seem to find any job ads in this area. Would it be appropriate to call/e-mail some Post-production houses and ask if they have any openings? If yes, how should I approach them? #editor #summer-jobs #video-editing #post-production #motion-pictures

I have just registered for a networking event (more specifically a Vancouver Post Alliance Event) and although I had classes about how to behave in a networking event, I wanted to know how can you meet someone in such a short period of time people and actually create a connection with them. #networking #film-production #editing #video-production #video-editing #post-production

How to get work expirience in my area of study while I'm still studying?

Hi, I'm a Motion Picture Arts student, I want to pursue a career in editing, I have no experience in this area beside from university and my own projects. My plan is to try to have a membership at IATSE 891, to do that I have to first become a Permittee. Last week I went to a career fair at my university and I was told I have to have more experience in editing before applying to become a Permittee. My question is how can I get experience outside university while I'm still studying? #film-production #editing #video-editing #post-production #film-editing #motion-pictures #iatse-891
