Entry-Level Tech Jobs: Support, etc.

Sorry for posting more career-type stuff here, but I figured it might be instructive for people other than myself to hear about.

So, I just recently recieved a BA in computer graphics and have moved out to LA to attempt to start a career.

In school, I specialized in the technical side of things - got to know how to code in Renderman (RSL,RIB) and Maya (MEL,API) quite well, along with C/C++, UNIX, that sort of stuff.

My ambition, for the short term, is to become a technical director - probably shading, lighting or FX.

However, I have several problems. First, my reel is lacking. I spent most of my time learning and coding, and less time making pretty pictures. Second, I don't really think I have the experience and credentials to walk onto a job as TD.

Given all this, I feel like I'm the perfect candidate for a low-level tech job.

Unfortunately, these jobs are somewhat hard to find. I applied to job postings by Imageworks, Digital Domain and Rythum & Hues via email, but got no reply. I'm not sure what to conclude from that.

Regardless, my question to you all is this: how can I find such a job?

Like most of my peers, I'll do ANYTHING to get my foot in the door. Perhaps unlike some of my peers, I think I could do a REALLY good job in such a position.

For reference, here is my resume:

And a coverletter:

Thanks very much for any help you guys can offer,
