How do I get a job in the film industry?
So I'm about to go into film school this upcoming year and want to set myself on the right path. Ever since I was young I have been fascinated about animals. And ever since I began making films I knew what my dream job would be. I believe the proper name for the position is a wildlife videographer, but as a kid I always just said I wanted to work for National Geographic filming animals (Lol). But now that I am am graduating from high school I want to follow this dream I have always had, but have no clue were to start.
From my experience, connections are the best way to get into the field; however, what I really want to know is what do they look for in people to become a wildlife videographer for lets say Discovery or Nat Geo? I've searched the internet trying to gain knowledge that would help guide me, but really can't find allot of information that is very useful. Now I haven't really stated a specific enough question because there are so many I have; however, in the simplest terms I am asking:
HOW DO I FOLLOW MY DREAM AND BECOME A WILDLIFE VIDEOGRAPHER?
