Currently it’s Vainglory. The game that I’ve put the largest amount of total hours in is probably Pokemon Soul Silver as I played way too much when I was younger.

I want to go to university to do a degree in film production but I’ll never have the confidence too actually go into the film industry so I’m not sure what I’m going to do

Have you done any work experience in the film industry? Lots of unis offer work experience as part of their film courses, and getting experience as a runner would be cool too! If you don't feel enormously confident, have you thought about roles like editor or colourist? I don't know much about it, but have friends who work in the industry. Seems like there's lots of opportunity if it's something you're passionate about.

Also, my question for you - what's your favourite thing to eat for breakfast?

You've been NEET for 3 years and your job ideas are still bordering on fantasy.

Don't you think it's time you thought a bit more realistically?

I have done lots of work experience! Although the majority of it was a couple of years ago.

Granola!

Two years. The first year was spent volunteering. This irony is that this is the mentality that made me NEET in the first place. I attended a year long university course in film and ruined it because I thought ‘there’s no jobs in film it’s pointless’ so I didn’t go for the course and hated it.

I then applied for techy related degree courses because I thought it would give me a better chance of a job but I decided not to go because of the maths element of the courses.

I’m sick of everyone telling me to be realistic because I can’t do anything else that isn’t film related. There’s no point in telling someone to do say, an engineering degree because there’s more jobs, when they’ve failed GCSE maths five times (like I have).

I wouldn't advise someone who has failed GCSE maths five times to do an engineering degree, that's crazy talk. But you have been NEET for 2 years now and I think it's important that you don't make an expensive mistake with your next course. Think about what your strengths were at school and what subjects are both interesting to you and would be taken seriously by future employers.

I only have two A - Levels in media and photography. I didn’t enjoy photography so that means doing something media/film related.

That's good.

I would have thought something like Media Studies would make you a bit more employable than Film Production (especially since you don't think you will actually ever want to go into the film industry). With media, the courses vary quite a bit but lots of them have business modules that would help you get into a wide of careers such as journalism and marketing in addition to working in TV, radio and so on.

Amazing! What's your fave department?

Excellent breakfast choice. Healthy, delicious, all the goodness. I had a little bircher muesli pot this morning. Delightful.

Have you thought about any non-uni film type courses? I think if it's something you love and you're willing to work hard for it, you will be able to make it happen. Just look at the credits at the end of films - hundreds of jobs there.
