Film Connection Letter | Tapestry Films
January 20, 1999
Congratulations on the expansion of your service. I know that for many years you have linked up established radio, TV, and recording facilities with fresh faces looking for a break. I’m pleased that you have decided to offer the same service to those wanting to get their first break into the film industry.
As you know, college degrees and resumes mean very little in this business. There are far too many qualified individuals already working. Producers and production managers no longer look to resumes, but instead turn to colleagues for their hiring recommendations. The old adage is true — it’s definitely who you know. This is why internships have become an increasingly effective way to get the proverbial foot in the door, and I’m glad you are using your extensive connections to facilitate this. I wish it were that easy to find connections when I was first starting out.
I myself would be interested in helping those individuals who take an interest in film/video editing and/or postproduction supervision. Believe me, I could put them to work and give them a better real-world education than most schools would.
Again, congratulations on expanding the scope of your business, and let me know if I can be of any assistance.
Editor / Postproduction Supervisor
