I did indeed go to film school. Originally I studied media at college whilst interning at a TV channel and then I quit and went to film school, pursuing film and leaving television behind me. I would recommend going as I loved it, met some lovely people and learnt some great things. However it isn’t for everyone, some people will disagree and plug that just getting into film as an intern is a better avenue. It’s all about what YOU want and what YOU want to get out of it, not ME!! We all have different attitudes, skillsets and there will always be one path for one person and another path for someone else. Do not take what I say and think “Oh Jay went to film school so that’s the best route for me." Do it because you want or don’t want to. I hope that helps.
Hit me up with questions and if you’re London based like I am then get in touch?
