Well, I am probably going to be transferring to the University of Texas Pan-American this fall to continue my education in Theater/Film/TV production...I want to go to UT Austin, buuut being that I am not a Texas resident, and am not a brainiac, they don't want me. My question is this...what is a recommended road to take or the education needed to get into operating a camera in Hollywood? Of course, I know it probably takes a long time to get to where you'd want to be, so I use "Hollywood" loosely. I'm sure some of our forum members are in this field, so if you all could just share about your background, etc....oh, and how much should a kid wet behind the ears expect to make right out of college? what is the earning potential? any comments or advice would be appreciated... oh, and if this career path doesn't work out...I wanna be a film history professor or something, so maybe your comments will sway me.....? later, brent.
