“For those students interested in exploring the many possibilities in this fast-growing occupation, there are many fine film schools. But here’s what I’d say to those students: If you have the fascination, if you have the interest: Start doing it!”
“For the first time in history really, the opportunity is there for anyone to pick up either an iPhone or a camera with its broadcast quality potential and get started: See what you have, explore what your talent is.”
“Never give up! Just keep doing it with your friends and family and others who are in your tribe!”
“Of course, there are dozens of books and YouTube videos on screenwriting, camera work, directing and so much more.”
“You’ll be amazed at what you learn and how fast you learn it, which will open up doors you may not have even considered before!”
