Dear Ms. Brynn:

I am writing to express my interest in the production assistant position at Beta-Up Production Company that was advertised in the Miami Herald. My resume is enclosed.

I possess extensive experience in all aspects of video production, including positions as writer, researcher, director, and editor. For the past three years, I have been a freelance production assistant working on several commercial and documentary pieces. As chief assistant on Milk Carton Kids: An American Crisis, I assisted in preliminary research and writing, scheduled location shooting, and screened potential interview candidates. I also helped complete two public service announcements for Miami Child Services, where my duties included camera operation and heavy editing work.

I have admired Beta-Up Production Company's work for some time and attended your screening of Silent Victims at the Miami Crime Awareness Convention last month. I would like the opportunity to contribute to such remarkable work.

Please contact me at (305) 555-5555 during the day or (305) 555-4444 in the evenings if you need any additional information or to arrange a meeting. I will be in touch in a week to confirm that you have received my resume.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

(Signature)

James Luther
