Becoming a Professional Digital Cinematographer


What’s up guys? We’re doing things a
little different today. I’m pressed for time, like major, so I’m just doing this
from the car while I’m waiting to pick up my son. Basically, I just wanted to
fill you guys in on the direction of things. This past week, I’ve been scrambling to
get everything taken care of so that I’m ready to start classes next week. They start Monday. From all indications,
things are not going to slow down. I’ve been told to expect to commit
40 hours a week to my studies. It’s what they call an accelerated program, where they are basically cramming 4 years into 2 1/2 years. So, yeah, I’m definitely taking a
crash course in time management. I’ve been giving a lot of thought lately as to what I was gonna do as far as these videos go. It occurred to me today that
perhaps the place to start would be doing some videos on my experiences
going through this course. I’m probably going to do that. I imagine I’ll throw
some things in here and there as time allows, but to at least have a steady
schedule, have some consistent content, I’m at least going to start there.
So, look forward to it, wish me luck and in two-and-a-half years, I will be a
professional digital cinematographer.

  • I started Full Sail back in August 2017 and my initial degree was Digital cinematography, but i decided to change to Computer Animation, and was going to focus on a Compositing Discipline, however I struggled greatly in the Animation courses of the program and decided it wasnt for me. I also thought about it more in depth and cant be in a career where im at a computer all day for the next 20 or more years. Im now switching back to Digital cinematography program. It will push my graduation back, but i believe its for the best, and that was what i wanted to do to begin with. What are you planning to do with your degree in DC? Are you wanting to go work for a film company, or start your own production business?
