Alrighty, if you don't know, I have a job at a little pizza place called "Papa's Pizza to go" only making 6 bucks an hour. I only work 3 hours a day and it's about 20 minutes from me... So basicly I'm paying for gas... really making no profit..  Also it's fast food... and it's my first time workin in a food place and hopefully will be my last. Well I've been looking for a new job and it just so happens I'll get a good one XD

Ok, so here's what happened... I made a Demo Reel, right? Yes.. Yes I did.
I gave it to a place called "Create a Video"... They take old pictures and turns them into video's and also editted home made films and things of the sort. ANYWAY! I got a job offer there... Mmm bop!

Funny, I made this Demo Reel last night and now I've already gotten a job offer..

Funny because last night I was talking to Casey [good friend o mine] about how I need a new job and she said she would pray that I could get a new one soon (as pizza isn't freakishly exciting)... And then today this falls into my lap... Crazy stuff... Totally thank God for it, as it's totally awesomely amazing ;p

Making 8 bucks an hour too.. which isn't bad for the thing I love doing =D! And also taking into consideration that I'm only 16.. and that I'm making 6 an hour now =X

Anyway... That's about it.. I'm happy =DDDDDD

So I thought I'd share and stuf..

Mmm Tsss Mmm Tsss Mmm Tsss Mmm Tsss

Cool.  Congrats, also.

I've never worked fast-food in my life.  Never worked in any food establishment, for that matter.  Just never seemed very...  appealing.

I got a riase recently. I"m getting $11.60 an hour (Canadian) but it's good enough for me. I also enjoy my job as an apprentice electrician. Never had a job in the film or fast food industries.

Ohh... That'll serve you nicely when you break into this film sh*t.  Try not to forget any of that, and see if you can get your boss to teach you how to tie-in.

I've never seen you before, so you likely have not heard this story.

When I was about 23 or so, I was delivering food for this place...  I deliver to a video company.  This guy has got new equipment out the yinyang.  So, I say, "Do you know how to work with all this?"  He says, "Well, no..."  So, I offered to do some training with him, since I had some experience in the area.

After about 2 hours, he says, "dude...  Why don't I just pay you to do the work."

Next thing I know I'm working as an animator for this video company.  From that job, I got experience After Effects, Photoshop, Bryce, and some non-linear editing.  I literally built a career off of it!  I'm 36 now, and am making more money than a lot of folks will see in 3 years.  And I attribute the bulk of it to having gotten a chance from this one guy.


Never underestimate the power of opening your mouth and offering your knowledge up.  You'd be surprised how things can work out for you.

And as such, I applaud your story and wish you the best of luck!


In related news:  One of my better freelance clients right now, I got because the production company of the children's show I spoofed in one of my films, saw it and loved it.  I've had a good relationship with them ever since, and am now working with them to maintain their web site.  Again...  You never know what may happen when you put yourself out there...
