The Truth About Entertainment

By Emma Beavers

Entertainment is a dynamic industry dominated by preconceived notions. This article sheds some light on this mysterious industry and blasts the myths.

1. "I thought I would never get any work if I didn't live in New York or L.A."

With production costs so high in the industry's two meccas, film and television productions are increasingly shot on location all over the country and the world: New Mexico, Vancouver, and New Zealand are just a few popular and inexpensive locales. With so many new hotbeds of production and at least one film commission in every state, a career in entertainment doesn't necessarily limit you to the coasts- or even to this continent.

2. "I didn't have any industry internships or experience in college, so I was sure I had missed my chance for a career in entertainment."

It's never too late to pursue the career that truly calls to you, even if you're already climbing the ladder of another one. Just be prepared and willing to start from scratch, probably as a low-paid intern or assistant.

3. "I'm worried that if I don't land a job with a major movie studio or television network, my opportunities for an exciting career will be limited."

Names like Paramount and NBC may pop up all over the news, but there are many fundamental cogs in the entertainment machine. Individual production companies create most of the television programming that is broadcast- in 1999, there were roughly 1300 in the United States alone- and advertising agencies produce the majority of commercials on air, translating into myriad professional opportunities.
