Breaking into "Hollywood" - How RIT can help

Trevor Mazzaglia on Tuesday, 05 February 2013. Posted in Advising & Support

It is no secret that the Film and Animation industry is very competitive. Breaking into “Hollywood” is often the ultimate goal, but where to start? The problem is everyone is talented, and everyone is looking for work. However, that’s not to say it can’t be done; you just need to be prepared.

Hollywood-Sign

Luckily, RIT’s School of Film and Animation has a required course for 3rd year Film and Animation students to help. Junior year is especially important because students are searching for summer internships going into their senior year. Work experience is very important, and an internship is a fantastic way to gain relevant experience before graduation.

Being in the class now has already proved helpful in my search for an internship. We have worked on our resumes, created demo reels, and gave ourselves an online presence through a personal website. The class often features guest speakers, such as RIT professors and contacts in the industry. These guest speakers talked about their story of breaking into the industry, and how they have ended up where they are today. They have tons of insight for students.

One guest speaker that proved very useful for me was one of the senior recruiters from Blue Sky Studios. She gave tips on how to apply for the internships they offered, and what they look for in applications.

This class gives RIT students a step ahead of the competition upon graduation.

    How MY LOVE LIFE CAME BACK AFTER BREAKUP

    I had a problem with my boyfriend 4 months ago,which made us breakup, When he broke up with me,I was no longer myself,I fill so empty and frustrated.Until a friend of mine told me about a spiritualist called Dr ogbu who helped her with the same problem. i contacted Dr ogbu via email ogbushrine@gmail.com and I told him all my problems and I did what he asked me to do. The spiritualist told me that my boyfriend will come back to me within the next 48 hours and to my greatest surprise my boyfriend called me and told me to have a date with him and i went for the date. I was very surprise when my boyfriend knelt down in the public and start begging me saying he is sorry and he proposes to me that same night and we are planning to get married now. I am so happy and grateful to Dr ogbu for his kind help.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks! http://cbreviewfactory.com/millionaires-brain-academy-guide/
