Working Backstage can be rough especially if you’re just getting started.
I wrote a short article about this that you can skim through. I’d love to hear your own experiences making it work in the industry and what you might suggest to others.
- Offstage Jobs – Lots of gigs cooking here and it’s worth a look.
- IATSE – likely you’re in the jurisdiction of an IATSE chapter. They’re the ones to call. Look for the Business Agent or Call Steward in you particular area of residence.
- Facebook Jobs – Type in “jobs” in the search bar and go to town. I happened to have found work through a DC Audio/Visual group on Facebook randomly so just look around.
- Google Jobs – a powerful tool that you can use based on radius from your location, keywords, and types of work you’re looking for.
