Gaby’s Answer

Find movies that you like that may seem weird or strange! Use your down time to find directors that you really like, and try and watch as many of their movies as possible. Read interviews with cinematographers, directors, producers, actors so you can understand each of their roles and what could be the best fit for you.

Definitely go out and shoot! A lot! It's one thing to learn from a book, but another to learn with your hands. Depending on what you want to do in film, I would recommend learning all parts of it hands on. Maybe make your own student film with your friends or volunteer at your local film festival!

Melissa recommends the following next steps:

Volunteer for local film festival
Create a few short videos - learn it hands on
