there's a certain feel that comes from watching an actual print in a theater that's lost through digital.  I'm sure that the majority of folks don't romanticize film viewing in that way, but it's a shame for those that do.
 
I know exactly what you are talking about. All footage was usually transfered to tape or hard drive. But there were a few times where we actually got to see prints of our 35mm and 16mm dailies screen through a projector. It's an awe inspiring experience.

Since the Fall I've been working as a Stage-Hand for live shows at one of the theme parks here in FL. The hours and pay are ...bleh.
In January I started an Art Department internship (unpaid) with the Feature "ToothFairy two". I mostly handled contacting product placement agencies about acquiring props, and also get release forms on other props shown on screen. Did a little bit of set dec. creating decorations for an art classroom setting. Production is wrapping up this week. So it's time to start looking elsewhere.

Odd jobs it is. Helping people like. Here and there as it might be.

(bonus points to anybody who knows where I stole that from)

For some reason I'm thinking A Clockwork Orange, but can't imagine where in the movie it would be.

Alex's mother explains to his father (or maybe the caseworker) that's how he spends his time when he's away from home.

Shift operator/assistant at 7-11. Not too bad. Sometimes enjoyable. Almost always tolerable even during a day that sucks outside of work. Very flexible scheduling/time off. However, that could be due to this particular store owner's policies/attitudes. No idea.

I briefly (about 30 minutes) considered that as a career choice.  I think I felt weird about having to deal with bodies of children and the elderly.

I've been in banking and finance for most of my "career".  My favourite job was as a Credit Card Fraud Investigations Officer.  Along with lots of paperwork (which I actually love), the main part of the job was a customer would go to the bank and complain about an unknown credit card charge.  Then I would find out what it was.  The number of times a transaction would be for a porn site that the customer would swear black and blue they didn't charge.  Then I would get details with their screen name, sexual preference etc.  It was priceless watching them do the backpedalling and accept the charge  TeddyR

Right now I'm working in financial planning.  The job was fantastic until about 3 weeks ago when I got demoted for failing to meet budget consistently.  I wasn't told that my manager status was contingent upon meeting budget every month.  That's what I get for accepting profit sharing as part of my package.  So I'm back to being an admin grunt which is fine.  No responsibility, no stress.  I just have to deal with a control freak of a CEO who thinks it's fun to change processes every week and then berate us for not being on board with her hare brained schemes.

I refused to attend a voluntary social function in the office, electing instead to do actual work so I wouldn't get into trouble for not doing work and she gave me a 30 minute lecture followed by a very rude and stern email that said I was single handedly  lowering the team spirit and people thought I was rude and it was part of my contract that I socialise in the office.  I was threatened with dismissal if I didn't pick up my game.

Then things went downhill from there.

Needless to say I'm looking for another job.  This time in the city proper and for people who actually appreciate my efforts.

For the past two and a half years, I've worked part time (usually 32 hours) as a night auditor for a local hotel.  The job isn't bad, it's just the pay is low (minimum wage) and I have a college degree (Information Technology).  I graduated from college about three years ago.  I'm currently in the process of decided what I want to do to move forward with my life, as I've been working 40 hours a week for the past two months, but the manager who's been on medical leave will be coming back soon and then I'll go back to my normal time.

Trying to decide between going back to college and attempting to get another degree, getting another/different job somewhere else locally, or moving back in with my mom for a bit and finding a job over in Missouri.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
