For a really long time I just drifted through life, unsure of what I wanted to make of myself. I went to university quite late, and took English Lit and Film Studies on the basis that they were both things I enjoyed. Sometime during my degree, I came to the realization that I just want to make films. I don't see why I should have to make coffee for people or be a runner first to prove that I deserve to do what I'm passionate about. As far as I'm concerned the best way to learn is by doing - if you do it wrong you learn from your mistakes. So in the last year I've worked on as many projects as possible, gaining experience on every aspect of film making - from the initail conception and scripting of the idea to the final stages of post-production. Ultimately, I would like to be an auteur style of director - writing, producing, and directing my own films so that what I see on the screen in the end is exactly what I originally had in my head.
