Question by cabinffff: Curious About Documentary Films?
I am currently in college and I am thinking of changing my major. I would like to get into documentary films (but not as a director) maybe as a assistant or anything else. I was wondering what the pay is like? How do I get started? and What job could I have dealing with documentary films besides directing or being in the camera crew?
Thanks so much.

The pay is not good to start, but it does get better over time. It also depends on which job you are doing, as well. If you’re the editor, you’re going to be paid more than the person who is the guy who is the key grip, the guy who holds on to the camera cables.
