•Always include a customized cover letter

•There is no need to include your objective

•List your educational experience first

•Divide your work experience into three categories:
film, TV and commercials. In each category, list the name of the
film/TV show/commercial, the name and location of the production,
and the name of the director

•List any unrelated work experience and achievements on
the second page

•Always include a reference list since it is a “who-you-know industry.”

•Remember: resumes should generally be no longer than two pages.
