DOP & Editor available for any english speaking or german speaking projects. I am freelance and you can view my work here:
Contact details are on the website.
Unfortunately, it seems as though this thread has been dead for a while now. I'd like to see if we can revive it with some more general questions regarding the industry in Germany and specifically in Berlin. If you have any answers to any of the questions here, please feel free to chime in. Additionally, it would be helpful if you could add roughly how long and in which department you've been active.

Quickly about myself: My name is Samuel Herbig, and I've worked in New York for the past 8 years in the electric department as electrician, best boy, gaffer and rigging gaffer and am a member of the I.A.T.S.E. Local 52 there. I am moving to Berlin in August and am trying to find the best way to get my foot in the door.

Here are my questions:

1. Are there websites that post job listings that you've used? If "yes", which one's? Are there/what are the differences?
2. Is there a cooperative, association or union that represents or in which members of the film industry organize? If "yes", what are they? Are they separated by craft? Are there different groups in different regions?
3. Who hires you? Do you get hired through various contacts you have in the industry or are you hired by a company?
3a. If you're hired by a company, did you fill out and send in a job application?
4. Are your jobs 100% freelance? If not, can you estimate the percentage that you do freelance?
5. Do you pay for your health insurance by yourself? If not, who does and how did you come by that arrangement?
6. What is the average length of your work day?
7. Is there a glossary of technical on-set film terms somewhere online, which are used in the german film community (a la the Harry Box book)?

Thanks for taking the time to read my post and I am looking forward to your answers and suggestions. By the way, if I missed anything I hope that you'll just add it to the list of questions. Perhaps we can build this out to be some kind of FAQ for industry newcomers.

Also, anyone interested in a meetup? If yes, send me PM and I'll see if I can organize a Berlin Film Industry Meetup.
