I decided not to go to film school, but several people I know have. One thing they all have told me is that they learned little to no film history (such as how Hollywood started). I, too, was curious, so I've been watching YT docs...very interesting. I tried looking into a few blogs about classic film, but they were a little...highbrow...? Like they talked UP to people and assumed we were all experts on the subject, which I'm not. I did find one newer blog that keeps things simple though - if anyone else is interested in silent movies here's the link:
If you went to film school, did you learn much about the history of movies? I think it's rather sad that there's not much time devoted to it.
