the finish line is approaching faster than I realized.. and honestly im quite worried. I’m a laidback, overthinking person, so making all of these life altering decisions is a big step for me lol. However last weeks blog post really helped me layout a career path so im grateful for that. I will need more time to pick out the ideal internship but at least I know where to go.
Today I had to sit down and think about my future and how to secure it. It’s one thing to know what you want to do in life but, finding your way there is another thing altogether. I used to stress myself out thinking about the process but now that I have a detailed guide, its not so bad. I intend to become a director of photography. However, that title is at the top of the totem pole, I will have start out as a Production Assistant and work my way up the ladder, picking up essential skills as I go along.
my main goal is to work in the film industry as a camera operator or a position where I can also help edit videos. Today I searched up a post production assistant by the name of Devon Halliday. As I looked through his LinkedIn, I saw that he interned at many places and gradually worked to the point where he is a post production assistant for the show Blue Bloods!!. I often worry about my future, but looking at him makes me realize that things take time and opportunities will come to you if one works hard for them.
Today I thought about the goals that I wanted to accomplish. After some soul searching and mind pondering I came up with this .
” One of my goals is to advance my skills with editing, producing, cinematography. i just want to develop my skills as best as i can, thereby becoming an all around person, talented in many aspects of the film industry. As of now, I want to work as part of a production crew, picking up skills and information that would eventually help me form my own production company but i’d rather work for somebody and acquire new skills and trades as i go along. I don’t have a particular company I want to work for yet but hopefully the internships I get into help nudge me in that direction.
I had a nice talk with the professor that helped point me in a direction that I will take some time to explore !!
I felt like it was a good start overall. The syllabus and objectives were outlined clearly and I had a nice time conversing with my classmates !. I look forward to meeting again
