Here's where I'm at with my current job search:
Saw a posting online for an editing position at a respectable-as-you-can-get pornography company. I am infinitely qualified for this job. My central reservation about applying to this job is that it is located in Van Nuys and I don't want the commute.
On a whim, I sent in a resume and got back a response asking me to drive out to their Van Nuys office, pick up a copy of one of their old movies, take it home, and cut a new 60 second trailer for it as a sort of audition piece. I am tempted to do this. On the one hand, I have reservations about working in porn. On the other hand, I could use the cash. Isn't that always the way? I sent in the resume thinking "we'll see what happens. I can always back out if my feet get cold." This same attitude may very well see me editing a spec trailer for a DP flick by week's end. I feel as though I am playing chicken with a dark and sleazy future.
