I am having difficulty in this area, and always have.
I am simply unable to convince people in authority of what i am capable of doing. to make things worse, I am a graphic designer who started off doing websites, moved to print (below the line) and now am in television..
I create rediculous graphics for news, and it's mainly stills, and i'm obsessesed with actual broadcast stuff, not just stills..
so i am tempted to become a promo producer...i always edited things as a youngerster with a sony cam since 92, but this is the real thing.. i just want him to know i can do it
i know that the minute my boss tells me, i need to stay in this department (still news graphics) i'll back off, have zero confidence and not know what to say anymore.. he'll convince me.. for once i want to convince them!!!
if anyone has pointers or tips, please do tell!!!
