Re: Interesting Resume Question: does this count as as work?

Were any of these films shown at a film festival? Purchased by a film company? Shown anywhere?

That's what is going to make the difference. If the films didn't produce any money or recognition, then it's a hobby. You could still list it as a hobby though.

edit: A good friend of mine was a film major and listed some of his better works on his resume. But he won some awards at minor fests, FWIW. He's a 1L now.

I have struggled to get a company deal..up to this point I've only sold a few of my films to small companies...local mostly..I am thinking of starting my own website and advertise my projects there and make it available to others to do the same...would that help?

Freelance film maker. Include films you've sold and who too as points underneath.
