  1. Hey unemployed in Atlanta… better bet would be the Georgia Film Office help wanted site, craigslist. Also, attend some Atlanta Film Festival 365 classes/meetings.

  2. Do you mostly focus on LA or do yu post jobs for all over the country? I have experience but have had no luck getting personal or production assistant work in Portland OR.

    • I live in Eugene part-time and I only get about 1 legit paying gig every 2-3 months. And their always prod. companies from out-of-state. Portland has more opportunity but if you wanna get busy, gotta go down to LA. That’s what I do! Cheers!

    • Hey Tyler. I just applied for the page program in NYC. I haven’t heard anything back. I’m located in LA right now, but I have family out there so transitioning wouldn’t be a problem. Is the page program worth the hassle and if so is there a number you could give me so I could call them?

  5. Hello,
    Many of these don’t list a location. I live in Atlanta and am always on the lookout for positions, but it’s hard to know which ones I can apply for because they are often not labeled for location.
