Ricardo’s Answer

Filmmaking is such an exciting and rewarding field, filled with endless possibilities for you to shine! Unlike other professions, you have the freedom to create your own projects at your own pace, ultimately finding a market for your finished products. If you have a passion for filmmaking, seize the opportunity to learn as much as possible—formal education is valuable, but don't underestimate the power of hands-on experience.

Consider pursuing a parallel career in a related field, like Communications, to ensure you have a stable income in the future while chasing your filmmaking dreams. Thanks to technology, anyone can create movies that make it onto streaming platforms. The key to success lies in continuously honing your skills and developing your unique voice.

So, don't wait for the perfect job to find you! Create your own films, gain experience, and watch your abilities flourish. Allow my own story to serve as an example of what you can achieve—after decades of hard work and dedication, my movies have made it onto Tubi and Amazon Prime! Type my name (Ricardo Islas), and see the results of a low-budget, outside-the-industry approach. Embrace your creativity and determination, and there's no telling how far your filmmaking career can take you!

Keith’s Answer

There are a ton of jobs involved in cinema. Most of the sexy jobs are in-front of camera, but the crew that supports cinema is vast. Think about when a movie ends and it rolls credits. All of those people support the making of a movie and those roles span the spectrum.

If you want to be a filmmaker, there is a definite path of study and experience you can follow. Similarly, if you want to be an actor. All other supporting roles have some specificity (food service, stylist, casting, location scout, etc.). Stunts are unique and require training. For most, you will start at the bottom, lower money, non-preferred hours, but the experience will provide exposure to others whom can help you grow in the field.
