Resume highlights

I'm not sure how to best showcase my filmmaking and photography skills on a resume. Should I include the Udemy courses that I've taken? I know that I should list past work, but I can't figure out how to phrase it in a way that isn't awkward. I haven't worked for a studio, so I'm not sure how to name my past and present clients. Will you all help me, please?

You could call yourself a professional freelance filmmaker/freelance photographer, then list the projects you've completed. I'd separate your film work from your photography work. You don't need to list the clients' names unless you landed a big project that will make you look good.

You can include educational credentials if you don't have any work experience. Mention projects you've finished or even volunteer works to showcase your works. Freelancing will also be a great addition to your resume, even if the contract is only for a short while.

I think it helps if you can offer up some previous clients as references. If you're worried about structuring your resume, you can mention the Udemy courses that you've completed under a heading called Professional Development.
