I like writing, filming, critiquing and writing reviews on movies, what job should I pursue?

I love writing stories and making videos. I love watching movies and reviewing them. I want to pursue something that allows me to work with movies but I've never taken an official film course in high school and will be starting college next year. What are some careers I can look at? I don't really know what directing or producing or anything entails so I don't want to go in with a false perception.

I agree with Mark. Take a film or video production class at College. If it speaks to you, then you've learned something important about yourself. If it doesn't, then you've also learned something. If your college does not offer classes, try to get an internship on a show you like that might be in production.

Mark’s Answer

Okay, August, you would probably appreciate a basic class for filmmaking to help you decide what interests you the most. Producing is the most difficult, and can become overwhelming with stress. Directing requires top-notch managing, and creative vision, too. Writing will flourish from midnight dreams, then staring at the mirror and scribbling your notes on a piece of paper after you drink coffee or tea. Reviewing movies could be the most fun, but you would have to pay attention and understand what the filmmaker was trying to accomplish with the audience. So why not find out if the university has a newspaper, and the editor has lost its critic, and you could impress her/him.
Then you could start writing weekly, and wonder as you leave the mainstream theater what else you would like to do. Good luck, Mark Wagner

Susan E.’s Answer

If the college that you are attending has a basic Film 101 class, try that out for size to see if that interests you. If it has a film major, pick out classes that interest you in the areas of production and directing and try those basic classes to see if you like them. A lot of colleges or universities will have a Television Production major and you can even get experience working in a TV studio helping to produce the university's talk show. See how that goes and let me know.
