I have enrolled and commenced studies on a BA (Hons) in Film & Moving Image Production degree course here in the UK.
I am 24 & will finish my studies at 27 years of age.
The course covers all aspects of Film making and analysis. I study at an Arts University so our study is fairly practical and hands on.
Anyway, I plan to be a professional (i.e. paid) sound designer working in the film industry.
Just wondering, now that I have started a course in Film, what should I be doing as far as contacting people in the industry to let them know I want to work in post production sound for them?
Are internships/work placements a good option? I would also love to spend some time working abroad in Europe during my career.
EDIT Part of me is leaning towards getting some work experience in the industry during summer breaks, but how to go about getting a quality placement is tricky, and part of me wants to study a masters degree at NFTS in Sound Design...
