Dear Ms. Oneal,

I am applying for the Cinematographer position now available with Three to One Productions.

I have always loved using cameras since I was very young, so I decided to enhance and fine-tune my natural talent throughout the years by pursuing a career in this field. I have acquired a Bachelor of Fine Art in Film Degree and I have gained extensive knowledge of the different types of cameras and equipment used in film making.

I have three years of experience managing the multi-camera rigs used in filming motion pictures. Through this experience, I gained invaluable knowledge on how and where to place the cameras in order to receive the best view. I also learned how to put together a variety of angle shots to create a more dramatic effect for the film.

I know how to operate the different types of cameras correctly and which ones to use for the best shot based on the particular scene being filmed. I also have knowledge of and experience working with digital cameras and using computer technology, which opens up many new doors for film makers.

I am physically fit and have the ability to handle the camera by hand for long periods. I also have excellent hand-eye coordination and I pay close attention to details. I am the best person for this job and I hope to meet with you soon to discuss this position in more detail.

You can reach me for an interview by calling (333)-820-5095 and I look forward to talking with you soon.
