So I stumbled upon this video the other day:
I laughed a lot. And it made me remember why I left film school years ago.
And then I remember the 10 Minute Film School by Robert Rodriguez. He's always preaching self-learning and making the most out of what you already have, as little as it may be. So here's the video:
It's kinda outdated, he talks about editing in video tapes and stuff, but you get the general idea: just shoot, get practice, get experience from real life, learn from you own mistakes, experiment, and make the most out of nothing. This is really inspirational and it makes you wanna grab a camera right now and start working on something.
Then there's also this other video, the 10 Minute Flick School, which is more up to date and he discuss things like After Effects, green screen, etc. I'll just leave you the link since I don't wanna crowd this post: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Xy9lOmbWo4
So guys, what do you think? Do you think film school is useful or would you rather just get your camera and learn from experience?
