Can't decide what to do, any advice? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi there, first time posting on here so um hi, I'm Steve.

    I'm at a crossroads at the moment, I can't decide whether to stay on at my Sixth form doing history, psychology and philosophy, to find an apprenticeship to earn money and learn, or to follow my film making passion and move to art college to study Film, Animation and Media Production. I know that if I stay on at Sixth Form it's the more 'safe' option and it seems more sensible and less risky, but I find the workload difficult to handle at times and often fail to keep motivated. My passion is with film making, while I have little experience with the exception of YouTube videos, it's something I want to explore and develop my skills in, the work load would be more manageable and less stressful and I'd feel more independent. However I know that this is a risky move and I worry where my future may lead. Or I could get an apprenticeship because...money. If anyone has any advice on which path I should take it would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    If you did an apprenticeship, what would you be looking to do?

    Have you researched/visited any art colleges yet?

    Really I’m not sure, I remember my mother said about an apprenticeship at the council. And the only college that comes to mind is Plymouth college of art
