Yes, they are
Yeah finishing college was definitely in the plan. And thank youThen you should finish your degree IMO.
That's a free ride and you're already half way there!
You can learn film on your own.
Many many people get college degrees in one thing and then a job in something totally different.
A college degree is ... like.. a checkbox on a government form. It satisfies bureaucracy.
needfilm school? No. The real question is:
Do I want film school?
I had dreams of going to film school most of my life but thenone night my friend introduced me to someone who wanted to be a filmmaker as well now like eight years later we are best friends and filmmaking partners. It doesn't always happen like that. I was extremely lucky but I guess the whole point of it is film school is a great way to meet like-minded people and connections but you can learn to make a movie for free. I would try to find people in your community who have the same passion and try to schedule some short films to be made.I’m a college student, I’ve always had a love for film but the idea was suppressed by my African parents. So I’m in the middle of college and I’m realizing that i want to pursue film, but idk the next step. Do I go to film school? Do I learn on my own?!? I NEED HELP
I've actually met people who cannot learn any other way than by going to college. Don't ask me why they are wired that way... I have no idea but the truth of the matter is that SOME PEOPLE ARE.
On the other hand? Some people are not... In my humble experience, most indie filmmakers I've met are NOT wired that way. They want it so bad that they forge out on their own and learn by DOING. That's often why you'll see people come to indietalk

Not after this Corona period....The big benefit of college is connections. As I've said before, all my work connections came from those I initially had at college. After college they were all through work connections. I've hardly ever gotten a gig through a resume/CV or even (believe it or not) a showreel.
Ask anyone who's a busy professional for his showreel and they show you one that's 10 years old.
