The Red carpet of the movie Atabai in the capital
Network. Go to film festivals, attend networking events, network on twitter, gain followers. Network in real life, setup meetings and actually attend them, NEVER FLAKE. If you flake once, you leave a bad taste in peoples mouth.Once you have some solid stuff put together (this will take plenty of time), put a reel together, then ship it out to agencies to try to get representation. Get an agent, get a manager, sign on at a commercial directing agency. Start marketing yourself as a director. Show off your reel.
