This article was written by Patty Fantasia.

“Being fairly new to the filmmaking scene and living in Las Vegas, as opposed to L.A. or New York, I must say that I find social media to be an effective and inexpensive networking tool.  I launched Filmmakers Notebook in July and with the exception of conferences and seminars I attended in Los Angeles and the people I’ve become acquainted with locally, I really didn’t know anyone in the film world.

    Ah but your forgetting craigslist! This is how I broke into the film industry. I had to do a lot of free work but after conneting with the right people I was able to start to consistently in the film industry as a boom operator. Once people like to work with you you won’t even have to look for work. Also mandy.com is a great place to look for work as well. So include these in your social media.
