Should I just quit my normal job? What should I do?
I'm a 21 year old; I think about movies 24/7, I've made quite a few shorts, I've written so many screenplays, so I badly want to get into the industry as soon as I can.
But this fucking job. It's nothing to do with filmmaking. It's so I can get some money coming in but I'm wasting 25 hours or more a week on this. I'm making so much time for my work...but I want more! I wanna go on more sets, meet more people, get runner jobs, make my own movies. I wanna get in there when I'm still young. I know I won't get there on the spot, I gotta work hard and hard for it.
I know some people but not much. I can know more. I can see more. I feel this job is just slowing shit down. Should I quit? Go through the hardships of earning shit pay and slowly (well, quicker than now) building myself up there?
Probably a very stupid question but I've been very conflicted on this lately.
