You should really go to that film school.

Blog

Welcome to my blog! The purpose of it is really to have an outlet for my mind but also to let you, dear stranger, get to know me better. Most of the posts will be general thoughts that cross my mind. It may vary from one day speaking of film and its current state, or reviewing the BM Ursa, to giving song suggestions, speaking about life and even talking about some games I may be into. It will really all depend on the mood of the day. I hope you enjoy, and I’ll see you on the next post!

You should really go to that film school.

I have heard a lot of talk about whether or not you should go to film school. Here's my take as a current film student: To me, it's a no-brainer, but I can understand completely why some people would want to explore film themselves, especially if they already know the right people and have the right opportunities. However, if you don't, I highly suggest you do go to film school. If not for the lessons, then for the contacts, the equipment and the fact it allows you to fully dedicate yourself (which is a huge plus if you have intrinsic motivation and are passionate for film!) Plus you get a degree, which is nice. Let's remember film is art, but it is also business. If you don't have contacts in a company or substantial projects that would justify not going to college because college is leaching valuable time out of them, the only thing that'll get you in is ability, contacts, and a degree. In the end, I firmly believe that with each film you grow. And film school will help you make more films if you go to the right school.

That's my take on the ordeal, so feel free to agree or disagree in the comments below.
