Long Term Goals and Aspirations

Career Aspirations

What career/job or jobs am I considering?                                                                       I am aiming to get a career in the film industry. Ideally, I’d like to be a director, and be able to eventually showcase my films in major film festivals. If not, I’d still aim for a job on a film set, but I’m not sure which job I’m best suited to yet.

Long Term Goals

What are my long term goals associated with my career aspirations?                          Firstly, I’m aiming for a distinction in my film production course, because if I aim high right from the start it will make me put all the time and effort in that I can. If I get a distinction, it will show to potential future employers that I am capable and dedicated.

Something which I think will be very important for me to do is to make lots of links between me an the film industry. I need to get to know people who work in some area of film or at least work in the creative industry, because they can get me work and introduce me to people. It would also be a good idea to get into companies like Signal films, who offer film courses to teenagers and young adults, as they can give me the experience I need and also probably support you to getting more work in film afterwards.
