Many of the speakers have worked on projects in the Cape Fear. They say it’s important to be flexible when trying to break into film.

“Absorb from every single department for every single day that you’re out there,” Production Supervisor Noelle Pfulm said. “Because it’s going to make you a better person all-around to be able to help everybody out there.

“This business is one of the few that offer you such a variety of things,” Producer Barbara D’Alessandro said. “Like my co-workers were saying, you never know where you’re going to be the next day, or six months from now.”

Speakers pointed out that there are many different jobs available in the film industry including art, electrical, and food services.
