I dont have one dream job that is the problem. I want to direct, produce and edit. If I had to narrow it down I don't think I could there is so much in each one I want to do. That doesn't really get into special and visual effects that I'd love to work on too.

Hey, Jsthompson79, Its really good That you want to direct, produce and edit. But If you are unable to do special visual effects, then hire a specialist for the effects, and for the rest you are the best.:cool:

I am going to continue learning when I finish my degree in 23 months. I will have my degree from Full Sail in Digital Cinematography at that point. I think I will begin looking for a degree in visual and/or special effects as well.

Not really a job but if I could run a low budget studio ala Roger Corman on the level that he does it would definitely be my dream job.

With today's technology. Everyone can be a Roger Corman. You just need the drive and a camera as small as a T2.

I want to write/direct/act

Me and two of my friends are starting up a production company and eventually I'm going to break off with a sister production company. My dream is to have an impact on people through my movies.

Why no options for sound design/foley D:
Or assistant directing? Or script supervising? Or sound recordist? Or production design?

Lame.

I chose directing, but really directing and editing would be my dream job, and really I'd be happy in either if I can't do both.

I could say I'm an actor/director/writer/editor/producer now, but then again I'm only doing a few YouTube videos. I'd like to continue all those roles through my proper career, though.

I would say i would like to do as many of these as i can but if i had to choose one it would be directing. Awesome poll to really see who we have around the forums.

I'm not your bro, I'm a woman, and I want to be a director not because I think I'm the shit and that I'm going to change the world, but because I love and appreciate every single job that goes into making a movie, and I want to work with a group of talented people and create something TOGETHER. But that's much less likely to happen for me than it is for every male who wants to make films, because people think of directing as a male profession, and I'm sick and tired of being surrounded by guys who want to be "directors" because they think they can make films which will change the world.

I have heard your exact comment at least a hundred times, so yes, you are just like everyone else to me, and it's all very well to believe in yourself, but your comment comes across as naive and egotistical, like every other aspiring male director/writer who wants to go into film.

I don't just want to crush your soul, but please, don't go crowing about how unique you are because you started a "production company" with some of your friends. It would be more unique if you tried to join a production company that already exists, to be honest. Or if you were an aspiring sound designer, or colorist, or editor, or producer. Literally anything other than writer/director/actor would be more unique. I hope that one day you and all the other aspiring director/writer/actors realize that you have more specific talents, and that you can separate yourself from the masses.

And I truly mean that in a kind way, not as a stabbing insult. You're clearly a creatively inclined person, and I'm sure that you're talented at something you don't even know exists. For your sake, I hope you find that thing, so that you can actually get paid to be part of the film industry.

I am not sure why you responded like that to someone, they have joined up here to share their opinion, have some respect.

You and everyone else -_______- I'm sorry but to me this came off like a troll.

I'm sorry if I came off that way to you Ginger. I would have understood if you said something like that from the beginning. I'm not being egotistical. My dream is to be a filmmaker, in many different aspects. I want to impact the world. I want them to question what life really is to them. I want to change those lives for the better. Me starting up this production company with a friend is a whole different story. It's a miracle it's even happening. By the way, I think women can be as good of directors if not better than men.

I wanted to act (Stage, actually) when I was younger. Now that I'm older, I actually am as interested in Producing as Directing. I kind of enjoy the behind the scenes stuff. Of course, I'm a writer by nature (Not an Author, since I haven't gotten paid... yet!) so I'm unlikely to stop doing that!

I would love to have people say "why" they want the position. I'm sure everyone here will say "direct" as addition to any other role simply because it is considered the dream position on a film set.
I don't like dealing with money so I don't want to produce.
I get annoyed writing for long periods of time so no screenwriting.
I hate doing heavy and/or grunt work so no grip/gaffer/etc.
I love music but it's more of a hobby love and not something I want to do everyday, also same reason as VFX/editing.
I have horrible stage fright so no acting.
I wear literally the same 4-5 sets of clothes for years at a time (I see it as efficient) so I'm no fashion / wardrobe type.
And I obviously suck at makeup.

So when you consider that I seem to have a natural knack for "feeling" a beautiful image (I say feeling because it's the only way I can explain it, I tend to be lucky or have a natural eye) and I tend to be the one to step up and take control when there is nobody or that person is failing miserably. So that leaves me with Directing / Cinematography (only as a backup)

Also, no VFX/editing because I spent the last 15 years staring at computer screens, that part of my life is ending thankfully.


P.S. In my internal discussions I eventually settled on Directing and filmmaking in general because, as a kid in school you used to get punished by sitting on the side of the playground during recess while others played. Well my teachers would complain because I would have more fun playing by myself making up little stories with whatever was around me than I would on the playground. I have an overactive and vivid imagination, it's really the only gift I have, so I'm trying to share it.

I could see your point, Postaldave. I'll give you my primary reason for wanting to direct. Whenever I read, I SEE what I'm reading, I've frequently read a book and thought "This'd look good as a movie... Just Like this."

Granted, that would suggest I'd make a good cinematographer too, and I'm beginning to study the topic, but I have a more instinctual feel for organizing the whole than for that specific part. Also, I'm kinda bossy.

Editing has always been my passion. If I have to write and direct to get footage to edit, I have those skills to use, also.

I worked on a lot of sets as a grunt and it was mostly boring. That's why I like the editing room. Obviously, if I'm directing on set, it can't be boring....you'd be too busy to be bored.

I completely agree! I can't decide exactly what job I want to do- they all are so cool!
