My friend emailed Garry Schyman (Bioshock series) because we did some score printing work for him not too long ago and his advice was just to keep networking... lol. Not too useful since that is why we reached out to him in the first place.
At least you made it far enough to talk to him! I've had pretty much the same experience when trying to make contacts "just make contacts" - asswipe that's what I'm doing.

I think I'll just have to keep on pushing until something comes up... and apply EARLY for seasonal jobs.
Well I've had a day job for the past 4 years but the company just went under so now I'm jobless. I've been hitting up some people I've worked on music for before but nothing has come out of it yet, a lot of "I might have something for you! Lets do lunch!". To be honest I'm not trying very hard nowadays, haha.
