Why did I chose film as my specialisation?

I always wanted to be a author. Write a famous book and live off the royalties. But I didn’t feel like I could do it for the rest of my life.

Then I went to poly and got introduced to filmmaking and I became very interested in not just the story in the film, but all aspects of it like the cinematography, post production and art direction. I really enjoyed how so many different parts came together to tell one story for everyone to enjoy.

My personal or societal perspective on film making?

Film is that is a medium everyone can enjoy. You might not understand the language of th actor but something about the framing, directing or color will tell you what is happening in the story. Therefore my¬†personal perspective on filmmaking is that we’re learning a universal language to tell stories and share it with others.
