Anybody have some advice on how to put together a resume for location audio work? I'm not really sure about the formatting and what all I should be including. The format for regular resumes doesn't seem adequate at all, so that's why I'm posting here. Previously I have just sent out a gear list and a list of references, but I have been asked for a proper resume this time.

Typically such a resume will have 1/2 to 1 page of traditional resume, and 1/2 to 1 page of credits, eg. Location A1 for "Marco Gets the Job", Marco Productions, June 2007. Such a credits list might be subdivided into headings such as Commercial, Corporate/Industrial, Broadcast, Feature, Indie, etc.

I include a gear list and rate in the cover letter. For the resume I include my contact info and a list of selected credits. My feeling is that you can write what you want about how you studied etc., but that what people really want to know is that you're working consistently, and maybe have a client that they've heard of.
