Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 1184: How do you do a "set visit" when you work in post?

You may not. You can, because you still have the opportunities to meet producers and directors who can potentially hire you for future projects or give you referrals to people at post facilities whom you want to meet.

This is one of those situations where I give advice on a strategy and you make it work for your classification. In other words, if I tell an actor or a costume designer to do a set visit, because that's where they do their work (on set), then you would ask yourself...
"where do I do my work?"

And when a little voice inside your head pops up and says, "at post houses like Todd-AO or Warner Brothers," then instead of a set visit, you would visit the post houses. You use the same techniques to get post house visits that you would use to get a set visit. You also use the same etiquette.
