David Henry Brooks IV Posted December 4, 2012 Share Posted December 4, 2012 Hey guys! I just joined this site today and am hoping to learn a lot and connect with a lot of people. Currently I'm 15 and in the 10th grade and have a passion for cinematography and filmmaking. I've been video editing for years but more recently (roughly 1 1/2 years ago) got serious about it. I've started working more with the film aspect of filmmaking this year as I'm now taking an AV Production class at my school and i'm loving it. I've always been working in post but have only more recently starting to do more things with cinematography. So anyways, I was wondering if film school was really worth it? I know quite a lot of things already about cinematography and film production and from this site and others I could learn so much more, without having to go to film school. Many people say that it's a waste of money and unless you're going to film school with very little to no knowledge of filmmaking, then I'd probably agree. But I want to hear from some people on here who have had experience. I'm also starting to make some connections with music video editors/directors and independent cinematographers so I can get help from them as well. I'll also post some of my work from youtube on here when I get the chance and I've recently made a vimeo so I will post it there as well. Thanks and I look forward to connecting with a lot of you!
