I've been thinking about a thing for so long.. I am a non us citizen. Even If I win an award in a top film festival such as Sundance or Raindance whatever, before talking about the distributor and marketing kind of topics.. I wanna make sure one thing first, At least can I get any film industry jobs in Hollywood?
Just tell me, Thanks!

Exciting about your script! (I write in the same way). Good luck with your writing process. Creating characters and world building is a fun process, enjoy it!

I went to my first film festival recently with DP credit for the featured film; I was surprised how I was treated like a celebrity. Networking and connections with the right people is imperative to indie film work. Researching & having a plan with a desired outcome before submitting to the right festival is extremely important.
I have clicked on indie films that I knew nothing about on Amazon, with laurels on the poster, so it works in some way? I have learned to zoom in and look for "nominated," or "winner" on the poster.

You make a lot of great points here, I appreciate you speaking from your expertise and from your experience, thank you.

Are you aiming to be a producer in the future?

vickie james says:

Hi Amber, I am about to start my first union gig – I was offered the job by someone I had spoken to in the past – to be an assistant to a producer. What is the correct way to ask for more information such as rate/hiring process/duties/location? Since its my first time, I feel like I might ask it the wrong way or I should just know how this works? I would love to hear from anyone. Thanks.
