Thoughts After Film School

This article found its way into my inbox a long while ago and it was really something I thought long about. The writer, James Benton discusses four captions that best define the photograph below that was taken on his graduation day.

I definitely agree with his first caption, Now What? Having graduated from university a short 3 months ago my first thought and my parents first question was what now? I even did a short post on it here.
He then goes on to talk about earning a stable income but how being a filmmaker and making good money can take many years, and can require various different sources of income and this is something I talked about in the linked post above. I said that I didn't want to go into working freelance and being paid per job and then perhaps working a second job in-between, I feel as though I want to know what I'm getting paid and to know when I'm getting paid.

After a lot of thinking over the last few months I've decided what areas I want to work in, and to help me with that I have an exciting opportunity coming up in the next coupe of weeks but I'll tell you more about it next week.
