Question 125: What is the best way to overcome the notion people have regarding reality vs scripted vs documentary to further my career path?
Perception is everything. Know what people's "preconceived notions" are, and have a new perception ready to throw at them.
Create a list of people who have transitioned from reality to scripted, etc. In other words, arm yourself with information, and avoid buying into their stories.
Be confident, persuasive, and ready to prove why you are qualified to work in the medium of your choice.
And of course, when in doubt, find mentors who have successfully made the transition you want to make and find out how they did it.
