I've been working in the Film and Television business for over 7 years. First doing odd jobs on videos and low budget TV; then was an Assistant on films; then a Grip[lighting]; then I moved to South Eastern Asia, for no other reason then for adventure; then back to all sorts of odd jobs from Behind the Scenes Documentaries on Features to Art Directing for Music Videos. So I can't say I have worked my way "up" as much as all over the place. At the end of the day. EVERYONE wants to direct.
