My First Two Weeks at inMotion
Two weeks ago, I came in to inMotion for a meeting with Sarah Fodey, left with a job offer, and started as inMotion’s new production coordinator the next day. It was surreal to say the least.
This past summer I have been finishing what feels like my never-ending master’s thesis in film studies. I was excitedly preparing for the end of my academic career and the start to a new beginning, hopefully working within the film industry. After a long and tedious job search the past few months, I was pleasantly surprised and excited to receive a call from Sarah.
Walking towards the inMotion offices the following morning I felt quite nervous about my first day. However, these nerves quickly diminished as I was immediately put at ease by the inMotion team who warmly welcomed me as their newest team member. From my first day I felt the creative, friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere that runs throughout the inMotion office. My first two weeks at inMotion have been educational as the inMotion team introduced me to their current projects and put me to work. My colleagues welcome my endless questions, all willing to help as I learn the ropes around the office, making my transition to the working world all the more easy.
InMotion has opened my eyes to the ways the production industry works, but I know I have barely scratched the surface on what I will learn here in the coming months. Above all, I am extremely excited to learn from some of the industry’s best and am grateful to join such a talented team that works hard and loves what they do. After six years in school I never imagined I would get a job opportunity in my field. It still hasn’t sunk in, and I’m not sure if it ever will.
