In terms of resumes, is it ok to list only relevant work- even if it appears there is a gap? I would like to shift my resume and, working in entertainment, you have a lot of “day jobs” too- some of them, very meaningful day jobs but not representative of my goals and complete skillset.

If you can avoid huge gaps by pulling the relevant skills from jobs that may not seem relevant that's great. But if it's just looking cluttered cut out anything that doesn't speak to what you're shooting for.

Yes, this is fairly common in the industry and a known factor. Cover letters or media packets are a great place to mention other skills you have that were learned at other jobs, i.e., 'the empathy I practiced while in customer service positions has informed my style,' or along those lines. Basically, hint at other employment but try to maintain relevance.

Thank you. Good point. And you’re right- at least I’m not alone in this.

Please excuse grammar. Doing multiple things at once! :)
