Recently, I got into film. It started as a hobby and now is something I do for a living.
I never went to school for it and I am always being told “man, your talented. You should go to school for film!”
Sometimes I ponder if I would be a better director/producer/videographer if I went the school route because I feel they would teach the fundamentals of film, which I believe is very important.
And on second thought, every time I struggle with lighting or color correcting or angles or anything that has to do with film, Google or Youtube sure enough has the answer.
My question is: Will school help an individual create better films? Has anyone gone to school and felt they learned what they needed in order to get to where they are right now? Or should I just stick to being a millenial and have Youtube be my teacher?
