My son has a degree is Film, sound production and he worked hard to land a job in the industry. But last year he bailed due to low pay. He's in some other industry.
If you seriously want to find a job in that realm you have to find those companies. I think trade shows are great for this. But that's not where or when you apply. You only go to find those companies.
Be aware that you would have your demo reel, resume and more ready to show. I find that many that want to enter this work avoid doing the work of making the demo and more.
Finally, the pay is not that great and the hours can be long with you sleeping under your desk at crunch time.
I'm a freelance Sounds Engineer and Afro Music Producer. I make Soundtracks and Fxs for movies, TV shows and TV commercials. However I like to be in the gaming industry as well. Does anyone know of any really serious start-up gaming team I can be part of? A very good list will do. Thanks
