I have been working (moonlighting) as a Sound Editor in NYC for 2 years now. (Foley, DX, FX and MX) I am working a day job and have been pretty lucky in that I can edit at night/weekends.
However, I am beginning to feel like this is never going to grow into a full time gig. As I find directors and producers to work for, I find myself as the only person on the post sound crew (no mentorship/learning from others at all).
This makes me think that I should just be working for Supervising Sound Editors and not Producers and Directors directly.
Can anyone provide any insight into taking this next step from part time to full time?
