Transcript

Next, we need to do an analysis of the current skills you have. based on my personal observations, I've come up with three classifications of skills pertaining to the film industry. We have those with low film theory and practical skills specific to the Department of choice. Those who have some skills in their area of focus, and those with a lot of skills in that specialty, but for some reason, we're just unable to break the glass ceiling that prevents them from entering the Hollywood industry. Now, if you aren't the first category and would like to boost your skills in your specific area of focus, consider going to an auto film school specific to your area of concentration. Similarly, information and knowledge is very freely available nowadays.

So online classes could be an option. For example, if you want to become a visual effects artist and have no skills in the area, there are plenty of both free and paid resources online for you to easily brush up and start improving your skills. You should also consider meeting and talking with like minded people in your area. of concentration. Where can I find these people you may ask? Well try online meetups or forums, they are localized, see your regional area.

And of course, everyone always learns by just doing so start working on your own mini projects, put those new skills and practice and keep practicing. Always, never stop practicing. Ever. If you're successful, you'll probably find yourself in second category of having some degree of skills, but know a few professional opportunities, solutions. Keep practicing, keep meeting and talking to people. Don't be limited by the fact that you don't know anyone just keep at it and don't let the lack of opportunities stop you from practicing.

With practice comes more refinement of skills comes more opportunities until eventually you find yourself in the third category that is high film theory and practical skills. So what do you do now? You've done the practice, practice, practice mantra and met so many people. So now what well now it is all about putting yourself in the places to meet and talk with the right film people, not just any film professional now, but the right one. Once again to sense find a way to meet with the right stunt person, not the one to be stunt guy from two blocks down. But the actual stunt coordinator on that one movie who happened to like frequenting a particular spot.

Think about it for a second and plan your moves wisely. Once you are at this stage. We've all that identify which level your experiences and skills are currently at. And you have your current standing as a potential candidate for a job in the film industry. So the more you can push your experiences and skills to the highest level, the better your chances
