Normally, I warmly encourage people who want to become tech writers.


I've also had to clean up several messes left by supposedly aspiring tech
writers who actually were "starving artists" who were just doing tech
writing to pay the rent until they got their big break.

If Colin's brother wants to work in films, then he should contact one of the
many firms that produce technical video/film, either independently or as
part of a larger corporate entity. (Look at the winners of the STC
International Technical Video Competition for examples.) With his
background, he has a unique set of skills to offer, which few technical
communicators can match (which translates into more $$$, which is what he's
basically after). He's also lacking a set of skills that most tech comms
have. So he should play to his strengths.

He'll be happier, and so will the rest of us.
