Let me explain I'm not the guy who used to make movies as a kid using dad's sound-less b&w camera, recruiting family and friends as my stars. I have no life-long dreams of remaking a classic film. My own storytelling aspirations actually leaned toward comic books and prose. I have absolutely no experience whatsoever with film as a medium, or as an industry. Yet I would like to learn the craft. I'm considering enrolling in the writing program at Vancouver Film School (still working out the money side of things), and while looking at the other courses they offer, I started reading up on their film program, and found that it actually sounded very exciting, and thought I could enroll in it after completing the writing program. Am I being terminally impulsive, or delusional, or both? After all, for me to study writing makes sense, since it's something I know I'm good at, and it's an area in which I have some experience: I won't be completely lost. Film, on the other hand, is uncharted territory. I'm a decent pencil artist, but that's as far as my visual storytelling experience goes. And yet the idea of learning to bring my own writing to life is so appealing... Maybe it all ties back into me being a control freak who has to do everything himself :p) I know there's several aspiring filmmakers here at HTF, and more than a couple of pros. What say you? Do I still have time to learn the art of filmmaking, or did I miss the boat by not developing an interest in it from an early age?
