So. I’m 18 years old, and I didn’t get into Cal Arts, RISD, USC's Animation program or any other college. I have just applied to San Jose State, Ringling and some other liberal arts colleges. I truly don't have a passion for anything, I have a passion for everything. The entertainment industry is definitely where I want to be. I am so stressed out because I am being forced into a Liberal Arts school, U of Arizona, because I don’t have enough passion towards any one thing. It was film. Then animation. Then film, rinse and repeat. My question for you guys is what are your suggestions about what to do as a kid who has a passion for the entertainment industry, but isn't sure concerning what aspect. As well as what to do about college.
Also, does anyone know of any instances where someone has found a job as a camera person/coffee boy for a person in Hollywood right out of high school, or how to find positions like this? This would be an awesome replacement (in my mind) for developing my interests instead of being pigeonholed into a school.
Also, would taking a year off to develop artistic skills before college be a wise thing to do, even if I'm not sure that is what I want to pursue?
I’m dying here guys, between the parents and the friends and the friend's parents all expecting me to give them an answer about what I’m going to do with my life, and me not knowing, I’m stressing out big time. I thought I would turn to the credible experts. All comments are appreciated.
Thanks in Advance, Truly.
