So I want to be a filmmaker? Which option should I take?Watch
I recently dropped a place at a 4 year Film production course at Bouremouth to study Ancient History and Philosophy at Leeds University. I had a change of heart because you don't actually need film school anyway to be a film maker but it would have been good practice too and maybe even get a reel going. But studying something I find enjoyable and intellectually stimulating surely will turn me into a more well rounded individual with more knowledge and that would show in the films I write and create.
I'm not even sure everything will work out with clearing either. But i've also got a possible apprenticeship with a Film location scout company coming out. I could do that for a year and that's industry experience which is GOLD. and I could do a degree some other time.
I don't even know where I'm going with this post, but how would I exactly be a filmmaker after university? I guess I could write during university and make some crappy dslr films but after that am I at a disadvantage compared to film production students?
I hope everything is working out for you! I was wondering if you could help me, I am an interior design student and Im hoping to create a place for young film makers and encourage young people into film? I was wondering if you could give some advice as to what struggles you have as a beginner film maker, is it with the finance? the skills, or do you think there is a problem about showcasing films?
What do you need as a film maker?
