In my experiences to get the good jobs and high paying work you've got to hustle. Degree or not, if you don't have a shark attack type A personality you're probably not gonna be making big bucks as a director or producer. If you want to be a camera operator or editor you don't really even need to go to film school, just get some equipment and start networking. If you don't want to hustle or network; a film school degree will get you an entry level film job, logging tapes, PA, some other bullshit, and you can slave away if you're lucky enough to get hired to a production company and not a production, slowly work your way up or into some random department. If you do go to film school partner with the best students, not your friends or people who have personalties you're drawn to, if you want your reel to be worth a damn at the end of it.
