I'm a sophomore in high school and I'm exploring my career options. What are some career options that align with these interests and what are some helpful next steps I can take in the near future?

At school I'm mostly interested in English while my hobbies include writing, criticizing or praising movies and music, photography, and anything that has to do with design or visual art. Topics that intrigue me are politics, debate, and changing the world for the better #arts #film-production #film-acting #film-editing #media-production #filmdirector #director #writer #film #editing #english #career #design

Can i go to a fine arts college after getting my bachelors in finance?

I'm going to the University of Pittsburgh in the fall for a finance degree because I had it implanted in my brain that i would go and get a bachelors in finance, go to medical school, and be some sort of physicians assistant. Now that i'm getting older and starting to have some self realization, I'm starting to realize that I love being creative and expressing myself and making things come to life like in video production and design and now i don't really know how to achieve that. I figured i could just get the bachelors degree in finance as a back up and then go to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh later to work on that career, but i'm concerned that when I go there I'm not going to fit in or do as well because I imagine myself being surrounded by tons of artists. Is this as good decision or am I fooling myself into thinking I could succeed at this. I don't have much family support (father) when it comes to the fine arts. He thinks its a wasted field and that it's more of a hobby than a career. #fine-art #video #production #film-editing #online-gaming

Mine is Film and Video Editors and Camera Operators, I'd just like an answer on these, at least one for each: "What does this job do day to day (Tasks/Responsibilities)?", "What is the salary? What is the job outlook?", "What personality traits are needed?", "How to become one (Education/training/classes/experience)?", and "What is the work environment like (Hours, travel, where, stress levels)?" If you answer, thanks in advance! #film-editing
