    The best way to start is to make music. Once you have a nice original mix (dramatic, romantic, suspenseful) I suggest opening up a web-site so that potential Producers can sample your work.

    You should also get involved with local indie filmmakers and offer to write a score or just musical bridges for features, shorts, industrial videos, etc. These young filmmakers are the ones that will be on the front lines in a few years so get in on the bottom floor.
