What is the best way to improve my acting?

It's hard for me to "crack my shell" during my acting classes. My professor is supportive and the class feels like a very safe place. The more I take classes and the more I open up myself more. I wanna practice that more in class and crack my shell more there. I feel blocked sometimes. I also want to manage facial expression and fully play with my body. How can I do that ?

How do I choose between two careers?

I'm a community college student, who will be transferring soon. I have wanted to make movies ever since I was a small child. It's the only thing I have ever been good at. I make short films in my free time with my friends, I go to the movies twice a week. I analyze the box office, and the careers of directors and producers. Its the only thing I have ever loved. Cut to my freshman year of community college, and I took a tort law class. Im not gonna lie, I love it. Nowhere near as much as I love movies...But I do like Law. Im good at law. I have gotten straight As in all law classes, and spoke with my Contract Law teacher who thought I should end up in law school, and it got me thinking. Im now torn becuase a career in law is stable. Its interesting. Im really good at it. But a career in filmmaking is all I've ever wanted. Its my passion. Its my dream. How do I pick between my passion and what I'm good at? I also don't know If I will be able to afford law school, due to the fact that Im having trouble affording undergrad. Im really torn. I come from a very poor family, and dont want to end up poor and miserable later in life. I want to make the right decision. In a perfect world, I would be able to do both... #college #lawyer #film #Movie #Law #Director #Producer #Cinema #law-school

In a career path as competitive as film, how do you stay unintimidated and focused?

I've had a dream to be a filmmaker for as long as I can remember, and make my own films whenever possible. It's no secret that getting into the business is extremely hard, and often times if you do not have the right networking or connections your dreams can quickly seem unreachable. For this reason, I propose the question, how do you stay unintimidated by the competition that may surround me in this field? #film #networking #director #video #producer #cinema #focused

Is a bachelor's degree from an art institute respected as much in the industry as one from a traditional four-year university?

I am interested in studying cinematography and think I will be better prepared if I attend a major specific institute where all classes are related to what I want to learn. It's not my desire to study unrelated subjects to my major just to fill the curriculum for degree requirements. #teaching #degree #acting #colleges #majors #film #arts #cinema

When can I start to apply for internships inside the Film Studies field?

This question is because there are many internships for film majors but some of them ask for certain experience or will be admitted once the applicant had completed at least half of its bachelor. Is this the case for every internship or most of them? #film #internship #studies #cinematography #films #cinema #film-studies
