    Post Should I move to LA when im 20??

    Hi my name is Joshua, i'm 15 years old and from a young age i knew that my life was film or nothing. Im a very focused guy when it comes to this and i have decided to not to go to film school in order to get way more on set practical experience, but my question for today is should i move to La at age 20 or just go to another filmmaking state? I'm doing freelancing work now and after i graduate i plan on doing more freelance work in order to save up money to move to the states. However im wondering should i play it safe and go to a place like Atlanta for a while do some freelance work there while working on my own personal short films, and what not on the side then hop over to La or should i just dive straight into La, take the risk like so many people say with no credentials (other then my freelance work which i believe no one will really care about) , no portfolio, and build myself from the ground up there hopefully working on sets, doing my own projects, shooting different videos etc. Honestly im not afraid to work the lowest job on a film set for a while and work my way up as long as im working some where related to film making and learning as i go. I know moving to LA will be hard, tough and even feel down right crushing at times and for a 20 year old for many may seem dumb. but i feel as though im capable of making it happen! but i still need the advice of some wise folk out there who have either done it or just know a thing or two it will extremely be helpful in knowing where to go from here. Thank you

    Welcome!

    These are all questions you as an adult (when you get there) will have to decide. No one here can make these choices for you, nor should we.

    I love that you have passion for film! The biggest thing I always say about people wanting to make films is "just do it". You do not have to be in HOLLYWOOD to fulfill your passion. Just get started and make as much content as you can, and at the time you feel you need to move to LA to further your talents, then consider it.

    Just my thoughts!
