Beatriz’s Answer

Hello!

I think it depends on what you enjoy doing day to day. Are you crafty? do you like technology? do you have this voice inside you in need to get out? do you enjoy organizing? how do you express your creativity? is it a product or a problem-solving exercise? do you enjoy setting things into motion? do you like fine-tuning and enjoy detail oriented tasks?... These an other similar questions can help you answer what you're asking.
I think it's very personal.

On a more practical level, the closer you get to the development of the idea that will be produced, the more difficult it gets because less people is needed. But long term it's probably best because you're in control of your destiny, as someone has already mentioned.

Jolayemi’s Answer

Hello, in my opinion, the best career in film production is the costume design aspect. The job is about much more than putting together a nice outfit, requiring a deep understanding of stage production, a thorough knowledge of fashion and costuming history, and an eye for creating standout visual designs. With each wardrobe element and accessory, costume designers bring the characters and settings to life, and immerse audiences—and actors—in their time period, culture, and world. Costume designers tell the story through clothing, they express the mood , style , history and setting of the play.

Jimmy’s Answer

The most fulfilling career in the film and film production industry is the one that truly captivates you. It's the path that intrigues you, that you feel compelled to delve into and master. Success in this field hinges on your dedication and desire to work, as well as the potential requirement of union acceptance.

My journey began as an Extra, then progressed to a named actor. However, I only discovered my true passion when I delved into writing. While I might receive one scriptwriting assignment annually, possibly two at most, I've always held a profound fascination for two other roles that, in my experience, are incredibly significant. These are the cinematographer and the editor. Both roles demand a combination of technical expertise and artistic vision, ensuring a fulfilling career for those who excel in either or both.

Louis’s Answer

As others have mentioned, the best career is the one that you are most drawn to, and provides the best creative outlet for you. Do you have a passion for writing? Then try brushing up on Screenwriting and pursue the path of writing Spec Screenplays to be submitted to festivals and competitions. Are you technologically savvy, and enjoy digital creation? Then maybe consider becoming a video editor and start by practicing with free programs like DaVinci Resolve and make video edits of things you film yourself, or with footage downloaded from the internet. Lastly, if you are a very hands-on person and have a more engineering or mathematical brain, but still want to work in the realm of film and television, focus on working as a production assistant or stagehand (the IATSE Stagehands Union as apprenticeships in their local chapters across the country).

There are so many different departments and functions in the film industry, do a little research online and explore all the various things you can do. The beauty of working in film, is that in pursuit of becoming a director, you are almost guaranteed to dabble in each of the different aspects at some point in your career: writing, editing, set design, lighting, audio engineering, costume design, etc.

Damien’s Answer

Director is always enticing but there are so many options within the film industry. Best way to figure that out is going in entry level and gravitating toward a focus as it presents itself.
