Columbia College Chicago Film School?
Very strongly considering attending to get a BA in film Studies(there is no specialization for a BA right?) or BFA in editing or cinematography. I'm 24 and I received my Associates 2-3 years back at a community college but never figured out what to pursue. I now know there is nothing in the world I love more than movies. But that is simply from my vast experience of viewing them. Maybe I should just continue doing so? I have 0 filmmaking experience (besides a 12 class workshop and PAing on the set of a short film). I also have 0 photography experience. I basically have snapchat experience. But the idea of a cinematography or editing career appeals to me so much.
So yea..just give it to me straight haha. With my lack of experience, can I succeed at one of the most populated film schools in America? And I take it having a 2 hour commute to the school would make it more difficult to be successful? I'd be willing to find housing nearby though.
Thoughts? Advice? Tips?
I really don't know what career to pursue besides this...the medical field in a subject area I'm rather weak in and who knows if I'll enjoy?
