This guy writes this post about me over at the pro sound newsgroup:
I can't tell you how many sound mixers basically, ignored me, even to
this day... It didn't stop me, I just never had a real apprenticeship
and ended up just buying the gear, and jumping in.. mistakes and all.
I'll show you a wounderfull example of this "shun" in action by a lot of
the sound mixers out there.
Go over to, Jan McLaughlin's website..
Introduce yourself as a follower of the blog, you'll get a nice email
back, ect... Then tell her your an aspiring sound mixer! BAM! That
will be the last contact you have... A real shame.
He must be thinking of some other 'Jan McLaughlin' else he's as much of a jerk in his opening email communications with me as he is above.
Help me out here, people; I've helped a LOT of you with sound advice.
Speak up in the comments please.
How do YOU get and keep the attention of possible mentors?
I got my first sound mentor by giving him and his sound team 4 months of 75-hour weeks for nothing but cappucinos; in all that time the mixer didn't speak to me at all until my last day.
POST NOTE: Of course, it appears comments for THIS POST are borked. Just when I really need / want 'em. Murphy's law.
