Question by cjmcclure18: How to get started in the film industry, preferrably production and editing?
I live in Southern California and I graduated high school last year. I really want to work in film production and editing. What are some of the things I need to do and what are some good schools in So Cal. I don’t really have a lot of money to afford a really expensive film school but I will consider all my options.
