Are you looking to get into the production end of things or the "creative" end of things?

and porn, obviously.

Why not combine all three... a gonzo-style outdoor beastiality flick, filmed on location...at a PETA convention to be precise.


danger + wildlife + porn = $$$

i spent years in film and tv production .. it is satisfying work in many ways and a lot of people in the industry are quite cool / nice people to work with.

personally i loved working on live to air tv.. nothing like the thrill of possibly fucking up and the world gets to see with no recourse :P i wish i had the same enthusiasm and lack of nerves for live music performances..

i dont recommend working in post production however.. nothing sux as bad as knowing u have wasted a good deal of ur life watching a blue line moving across the screen rendering a frame at a time at snail pace.

I would die if i had to work post production for video.

I'm ok for post production of audio.


live to air is pretty sweet, I've done a few local telethons. it keeps me busy, which is nice.

I really enjoy the people as well. though, a few dicky know-it-alls get through.




this wildlife porn idea though... hmmm....

I spent many years in film production as well. It can be a lot of fun and you can make some good money, but be prepared to work crazy hours and spend a few years getting people coffee and driving people around.
