Thank you! Well said.
This article should be titled "10 Reasons Not to Go to Film School if you want to work in the film industry". Not everyone that goes to film school wants to make independent films, or be a director or a cinematographer. Now a good majority sure, this article is pretty near spot on. But on the flip side I got more out of my degree than just how to use a camera and critique a film. Honestly the biggest things I took away from film school was the chance to just make films and not have to worry about making money off of them or getting them distributed while at the same time making some of the best friends I know today. I wouldn't have gotten the internship that eventually turned into a job and most importantly college was an overall great experience. I know not everyone has the means to go to school and not everyone works well in that setting but for me I have no regrets.
tl;dr film school was awesome.

Interesting article! Definitely some good advice, I just find it hard to compose shots when things are happening right in front of you and if you don't hit record you'll miss it.
Haha we pretty much wrote the same thing within one minute of each other.
