Actionable Steps

  • Some mistakes will be more expensive than others but at the end everything is an experience where you can learn a lot.

  • After school you’ll have to keep improving and learning on your skills, you can never stop.
  • There’s nothing set in stone in the movie making industry, there’s many niches where you can develop yourself as a great artist, keep your eyes open and talk with the best professionals from all ages.
