Industry vs Freelancing vs Indie directing?

Is freelancing the same as Indie directing? What separates these three? What are some pros and cons of all three? How do I succeed in each? And how do I switch from one to the other, such as switching from Industry directing to Freelancing? Will I have more control over the movie if I choose to freelance? Google has not helped me one bit.

Is it true that nearly 65% of all film directors only make 1 film in their whole life??

I recently read this statistic and it has shocked me. Am I doomed to only put one art piece into this world? The expectation for becoming a director is fame but still. I mean I want to make many movies and the idea of only being able to make one sounds completely hope-crushing. On the other end of the spectrum, I read that there is one director who made 150 movies and another who made 15 in one year. Obviously, this doesn't indicate quality but if someone can make 15 movies in one year, then it gives me some level of hope. Input?

How can I make good movies without them taking me years?

My interest in filmmaking started with Quentin Tarantino. He is a genius and I love his movies, but his career has also scared me in a way. He has only made 10 movies and he has been making films for decades. His movie reservoir dogs only took like three weeks to write and yet it took three years for the movie to be made start to finish. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't want to spend years on one project. I want to make lots of movies and the idea of spending years of my life for one movie just terrifies me. Any advice to sort of calm these nervous thoughts?

Need multiple opinions as this is really stressing me out. Input?

I recently considered getting into film production by attending the LA Film School and becoming a Director. I would probably be one of those directors who writes my movies and does the cinematography, but I have one issue: the idea of doing just one thing terrifies me. I would love to be a director but also want to do other things. Maybe be a musical artist or producer or something else and I just don't know what. I love physics and philosophy and geopolitics but I don't want to be a professor or something. I also don't want to just be a director and would likely end up being a generalist of sorts. I am also worried that if I go to school for film then I won't be able to pursue other things. Input?

How do I pick what to do in college and with the rest of my life?

I am starting my senior year of high school in the fall and I've been thinking about what I want to do in the future. I really love film and I've been interested in becoming a director or cinematographer, however, I've been told that they aren't practical enough. The alternative is international law and political science because I guess those are things I could settle for. How do I pick what to do?
