School is good if you can, if not put yourself in your own school.
Give yourself projects; You’ll learn the language of video, pace, time management, learn from mistakes.
Learn from failure. It will happen, learn how to grow from it.
Challenge yourself, “Have I improved?”
Have a platform where you can share your work.
Success comes by working hard.
When your working hard on something you love, it doesn’t feel like work at all.
Don’t get caught up making stuff for money, money will come, if you love doing what you do people will see that and hire you to do it.
The important part is knowing what you’re doing.
Using what you have.
Learn the fundamentals on how to tell a story. Book: Blink of an Eye by Walter Murch
Freelance: ask, “Do you have a budget for this?” ask yourself, “What is my time worth?”
Volunteering and interning: your pay is the experiences.
Create projects that you want to get hired to do.
People will pay you to do what they already know you can do, they don’t want to pay for your experiment they want to pay for a guaranteed product.
Put yourself in your own school, read books, give yourself projects and deadlines.
Learn how to manage others: communication is key, don’t be afraid to ask for help, to correct, to critique.
Do it all in love for the greatness of the team. The goal is to get things done, by the deadline.
