I'm looking for work as a 1st or 2nd AC in and around ATL. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best course of action in finding jobs?
Network, Network, Network. Atlanta is huge, and small at the same time. Start with things like Film Bar Monday. It's a pretty nice relaxed film community here. We meet on Mondays at different bars. You can find the group on facebook. Also If you are an AC, the rental houses should know you by first name. Lots of DP's and AC's in there looking for people to potentially crew for their next gigs. If anything, that is where you can expand your network within the camera department. Also volunteer with some of the local 600 events here in Atlanta. Cheers.
