I’m sorry to hear this OP. reach out to production and post companies too. Use your network. PA, be a runner, just do anything to be useful and it will get noticed and work will flow. If you’re an agency person, it’s a great time to diversify and get some vendor side skills, which will make you all the more valuable in the long run. Hang in there and good luck. I know it must feel like hell right now
