Question by K_Knight: Finding Filmmaker Jobs in NYC?
I’ve tried Craigslist, and find the people on there only looking for free work. I film my own productions, but still need to make bills. Are there good sites for finding more paying work? I also use mandy.com, so other suggestions would be great.

Try backstage: http://www.backstage.com/bso/index.jsp
It’s much more professional and focused mainly on New York and LA.
Act fast though, people respond to those ads immediately when they come out and if you’re not among the first responders, there’s no reason for anyone to even consider you.
You may also consider looking at the Freelancer’s union for additional help. http://www.freelancersunion.org/
Good luck, it’s a tough business. That’s why I became a lawyer, much easier.
