Troy and I discuss the merits of film school and whether kids in 2017 and beyond should even consider film school. Most of us young filmmakers look to Casey Neistat more than Steven Spielberg. So why even go to film school?
Why not just study tutorials on YouTube and save yourself the student debt?
Troy makes a great point that film school has been mostly about making connections. Networking on steroids. Your classmates are the future filmmakers of the world (and the future people that could potentially hire you for their next movie.)

My Life Story (sort of)- http://bit.ly/jpa_mylife
I can remember picking up my family's video camera as a teenager and being enthralled that I could make an impact in someone's life. The filmmaking process is complex but at the heart of it simple: tell a compelling story.
What resonates the hardest is visual storytelling. The ability to create an emotion or convey an idea through an image is what drives my career as a filmmaker. My marathon mentality is focused on becoming the best cinematographer possible.
