If you ask me about my plans, I’m going to give you a confused look and probably say something like “umm….”. Then I’ll just blurt out something like “Professional Ballet Company! or DIrector!”. But honestly I”m not all that sure at all. There are so many things that I can do with the training and am getting and will receive in the next for years. It honestly doesn’t stress me out.
I normally do plan stuff out if I find it to be of great importance. For example take last year when I was looking for colleges. I planned so much in order to take all the right steps to getting in the program. It’s actually the biggest things i’ve done in my life. But honestly I had no clue I was going to be a dance major during my first semester Junior year in high school. I just happened to stumble upon it. It is exactly the same with film. I started actually putting more interest in film during my senior year in high school. I made my decisions based on what gave me the most joy and satisfaction. I worked my ass off for both and now i’m here, learning material that I never really looked into during my highschool. Its funny how most of the arts students here seem to have had a plan to be majoring in their art form. They must have known a long time ago because It takes a long ass time to gain the amount of skill that they all have obtained. My story is much different, in a way I kinda just got lucky. Either way here I am and I’m doing what I love and now i’m just exploring the differnt worlds that can be opened through my studies.
Ultimately as of now I REALLY REALLY REALLY LIKE BALLET and I’ve decided that I would be interested in joining a professional company. I have no idea which one or where in the world it would be (yes I’m going to go ahead and dream big), but i’ll have to do some research and planning and definitely continue working on my technique and I’ll be thinking auditioning for summer intensives and stuff like that. Although I’m still really interested in film and the idea of being a cinematographer sounds REALLY REALLY FUN! So I’m also thinking about that, and I need to take Production 2 because that’s where I’ll be able to learn more about that. So now comes the question…which one do I want to do? I have no clue. There are also TONS of other stuff I’d like to do such as work on a television series. Idk how i’ll be able to get in on that but internships are always great. There is a huge Cannes internship next spring that I plan to apply to and hopefully I’ll be able to go and make great connections that could jumpstart my career in that field. Hoorah!!
