Question by spoiled little girl: I just got my bachelors degree in filmmaking, what steps do I have to take to?
Direct a film? Because I wrote a screenplay and I want to pitch it to agents but if it’s picked up, I’d like to direct it. How do I do that? Do I have to work as a producer on a big film first and then take that experience and show it to a film studio so they’ll let me direct a film or what? How do I get to be a director of my own film?

first off smack yourself in the head for getting a useless degree and wasting all that time and money. Then write a screenplay or network with others who have friends in the industry. School is not the right route for hollywood. It is all about who you know and who knows you. Start eating at the right places, hanging out at the right clubs, and reading variety. You are behind the eightball at this point, but if you work hard enough at meeting people and becoming known, things will happen for you.
