Question by Brains_Not_Bombs: Film schools in Pennsylvania?
I went to college for a year in 2008 at Lock Haven University for Mass Communications, and I absolutely hated it. Not only did I realize Journalism wasn’t what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, I also hated the fact that I had to waste money and time on classes that I had no use for; Algebra, Geometry, European World History…I spent kindergarten though senior year of high school learning all of those things.
I’ve decided on a major–Film Production. I’d love to eventually direct, or even write screenplays or commercials. But I want to go somewhere that concentrates on my major–not wastes my time with things I’ve already learned and will not need to heavily utilize in a real life job related to my major.
I live near LHU, and I’d really like to stay in Pennsylvania for college. Even New Jersey, New York, or Maryland wouldn’t be too bad. And cost is an issue, unless I can get major grants and loans. I’m not all that concerned about the cost in the long run, because I know it will be worth it. But I can’t afford a huge monthly payment right now.
Wow. Bitterness about your own job?
First of all, there are all different kinds of things you can do with a degree in video production. I’m not stupid enough to believe I’m going to be the next Diablo Cody, but I do have ambition and I know video production is something I’m good at. And film isn’t the only media that exists for video production.
And you might have used your parent’s money to fund your college career (if you even went), but I’m actually an adult and can take care of myself, thanks.
