So i graduated in 2014 and went to my local college and was interested in majoring in communications. I took a little pre-comm course in HS and i really enjoyed it, and thought that it would be a cool thing to study in college.
But i changed my mind while in school and i dont feel like im really cut out for being a broadcaster. And i've always been super interested in filming and editing for the last like 6 years or so. Last year i finally had enough money to buy a starter set up (t2i, few lenses, glidecam etc..) upgrading from a gopro and other action cams. Throughout the season i pretty much fell in love with filming skiing and other things with a semi-serious camera. I got hang of everything right off the bat and its pretty much turned into a passion along with skiing.
I feel like its something I would enjoy doing for a career but i dont really know where to start. I know that theres quite a few serious filmers on here who point cameras at things for a living and im looking for a few pointers on what i should do to get started on this path.
Is film school a good place to get the ball rolling?
What are some schools that have good film programs?
Ive been looking at loyola marymount in LA. I know Will Start goes/went there. Anybody else know more about this school?
And im taking this year off school to do some ski bumming and get the hell out of my home town, the plan is to go to SLC, eheath i know you went to the U, do they have a pretty good film program?
Thanks for the help guys, sorry if I rambled.
