1. make a portfolio that contains all your short films and basically just what you have created. Try taking photography. Watch a lot of old films and everyone of them, analyze the angles they use and what is trying to be emphasized.
2. you could use an associates degree but bachelors is more common.
3. No need for a diff. language, although would look good on your resume.
4. good film college is UCLA, Long Beach, etc.
5. you need to get hook ups from friends from school since the film industry is 90% freelancing. Always make phone calls and be active.
p.s. don’t let your ego get the better of you. good luck!
