Exploring This Job

There are many ways to gain experience with filmmaking. Some high schools have film clubs and classes in film or video. Experience in theater can also be useful. To learn more, you can work as a volunteer for a local theater or a low-budget film project; these positions are often advertised in local trade publications. You may also be able to volunteer with your state's film commission, helping to solicit production companies to do their filming in the state. Film festivals also usually need volunteers; keep track of those coming to your area and visit their Web sites to search for volunteer opportunities.
