Getting Your Foot in the Door
If you’ve spent years watching video channels wondering how you can get into film and video editing you’ve come to the right place if you live in Nashville. Here are the best places to get your foot in the door when it comes to making a name for yourself in editing:
Schools: Nashville has a huge public school system and several notable colleges and universities, too. Volunteer to apprentice or produce a spot for your child’s class and you’ll be networking and learning more about the trade at the same time.
Sports: There are several professional sports teams in Nashville and the Titans need a lot of video editing. Talk to coaches, the local sports stations and even to radio producers about what it might take to get you on the field or in the cutting room.
Music: This one’s obvious but if you’ve got any ties to the music industry at all you should milk them. Find a way into music video editing or speak to a popular bar about recording some of their live performances…the possibilities are endless here.
