Film Production Sound in Secondary Markets—The Value of Networking

I came back home to North Carolina after a negative experience interning in Nashville and eventually navigated my way into sound for picture in corporate and commercial work. I have built my network over several years, gone to grad school for film scoring, moved away from the slightly more competitive area of Raleigh, and now have a small 5.1 mixing studio in Winston-Salem, NC. I want to highlight some of the things a young person needs to know to get work as a new comer among veterans where ever they go, emphasize continual skill development beyond school, the value of personal relationships, and navigating the ups and downs of being a freelancer.
