Any advice on how to get a job in NY again after you’ve left for a few years? How do you get HRs attention- use NY address? Cold emails? Suggestions welcome!

Send an email directly to the Heads of Production. Let him/her know that you want to relocate back to NYC. Plan a trip and ask them to meet with you. I did this when I wanted to move from LA to NYC. Severals heads were nice enough to meet me. Start there.


Are you back, physically? In NYC?
That's almost a must (I've found).

There's a lot of work. Think bigger than just agencies. (talk with media, publishers) - get on stuff like WNW and LinkedIn

Hi Fishes,

I’m holding 2 offers ZS with 22lpa and Synechron with 20lpa. I’m worried about wlb in ZS and job security in Synechron. Though Synechron has also made me an offer to send me onsite to dubai. But in ZS growth will be more I guess. So super confused.

I cleared all round at APISERO and received confirmation mail on 24th Dec,2021 communicating they will call for HR discussion in 8-10days. It's been 18days now and I tried to reach the SPOC but she isn't responding to the phone calls.

Is there any hiring freeze going on at APISERO?

Current contract - amazing company that has been vocal about bringing me on when approved but no promises. Contract is $60/hr. I negotiated high due to paying private health ins at high $. I was offered a role at a different company for $105K with a $5K sign on and additional benefits. I expressed my need for a $115K base in our original conversation. Anything less than 115K is a paycut from current $ and if I was offered FTE at current contract. Thoughts on negotiating? I dont want to be greedy

Any ideas on what the next step is for a producer who doesn’t want to be in the weeds of production after a certain point, but also has no desire to manage people? What other paths have you seen producers morph into later in their careers?

Hi! What is an appropriate fee for a production services company that will handle all crew and services for a big production abroad? As a percentage of all the expenses.


Question about what’s realistic: My boss, vp of marketing, is dead set on working with an agency who can produce multiple videos over the course of several small shoots so that we can iterate on what’s working. From my experience, this would cost a lot more than our budget (80k) and would ultimately be more expensive than one larger shoot with more deliverables. Videos are short, 10s or less and without a real narrative — more just for a sizzle reel kind of thing. Thoughts? Nyc based.


Hi Producer fishies! I’m trying my hand at putting together a reel but wanted advice - if you have internal client work do you include it and just pw-protect your reel? Is a playlist of vids ever acceptable instead of an edited reel? All advice is welcome!
