  • What are your filmmaking goals for this year?

    Posted by Maura  on 2022-09-06 at 3:48 AM

    School has just started and it is a great moment to set up the goals and objectives that you wish to achieve in the following year! Setting specific goals can help you make the most out of your education. For this reason, you should set three types of goals: personal goals, specific goals and goals focused on your growth as a person and as a professional.

    I will provide three suggestions of goals that you can set, one for each category:

    1. Personal: Find the balance between school and fun

    Most students want to experience the “student life” and have fun. But you also need to focus on your studies and learning, because, after all, this is why you are going to school after all. Because of this, a good personal goal would be to find the balance between school and fun and look for ways to enjoy your student life while also learning and developing new skills.

    2. Specific: Find a mentor

    One of the greatest benefits that school provides you is access to experts and professionals. Find a teacher that vibes with you and ask him to guide you in your educational journey. He will help you improve your filmmaking skills in a shorter amount of time by passing down some of his knowledge to you.

    3. Growth: Focus on learning more than you focus on your grades

    Grades are important but what is more important are the skills that you develop during your time as a student. Try focusing on learning as much as you can and develop your skills because they will help you in your future career and in securing a better job. Try working as a volunteer in filmmaking projects that happen inside and outside of your school.

    What goals have you set for this year?

    These are all some very good goals!
    I also have the goal to make more projects this year and get to share them with the world! I still have a long way to go until I reach a level that I feel comfortable sharing with others.

    One of my goals is to create a short film in VR. I do not have the required gear so I am hoping that I can borrow it from someone or somewhere or partner with someone who also has the same goal as mine!

    Mentors are a great way to evolve as an individual and you can find mentors even after you graduate Uni. There is always someone who knows more than you do and you can learn a lot from that someone! This advice would be best for our new member @harryEdwards 😀

      Thanks for tagging me, Julia! Where can I find a Mentor if I am not in Film School?

        You can really find a mentor anywhere, even on this website. You just have to look for the right person for you and ask that person to be your mentor. Sometimes, you will have to pay the mentor. At Uni, you can find a teacher to be your mentor which you won’t have to pay because you already pay tuition 🙂 Another benefot of going to film school I guess

    My main goal this year and in any year is to become better! For this to happen, I need to get involved and do more!

    My goals are to be on more production sets and interview more filmmakers.
