Ageing This theory assumes a positive relationship between activity and life satisfaction. One theorist suggests that activity enables older adults to be able to adjust to retirement.
So you have to ask yourself the question: Am I Any Good at Anything? I'm totally useless at everything This is not necessarily a problem as some people working in the industry are totally useless. Some years ago I was rude about various jobs, but then I realised there is no point in being offensive!
Some people who work on the floor, i. I'm totally useless at everything but I am willing to learn Now this is much better. Unfortunately modern schooling means that most of us are never "first". So you may feel useless because people kept telling you from childhood that you could do better if you worked harder.
So you worked harder but never got to be first. So then you got very pissed off, set fire to some things, smoked some joints and decided you were useless. Many successful film people started life like this. Film People are kind of outlaws anyway: So if you've got bored of being bored, then working in film might just prove to you that you're good at something, even if you can't figure out what it is.
I'm good with money Films employ Accountants by the bucket load. When there's a few million dollars to control, or a few hundred million, the Accountant is a rather important figure. He or she and it seems to be she quite a lot of the time does the same job that accountants do elsewhere but they can say "I'm working with Meryl Streep at the moment" and stuff like that.
Accountants rarely see anyone connected with the film, unless they don't pay them. So if they see someone, they are usually angry. This makes the job quite hard, as sometimes films run out money to pay people, then the crew turns quite ugly. The producer or the director will make some kind of encouraging speech - "The money is definitely coming next week When it doesn't, the accountant is first in the firing line.
You may not want to be a movie accountant. If you're good at numbers, you could ignore that and do something more interesting - but don't ask me what. On the other hand, film accountants are usually pretty happy because they get really well paid! Well this opens up a host of possibilities. This might be the moment to confess that I am a Cinematographer, or Director of Photography, which sounds rather more grand.
This means that I only really know about what goes on when we shoot a film: Anyway, if you like reading then there are people who read, and get paid for it.
Oddly enough, they are called readers, and work for studios and producers who attract more scripts than they can read themselves.
There are some pretty amazing statistics for the number of scripts written versus the number of films made. I don't know what they are, but I know they are amazing. This need not put you off being a reader however, as it means there are plenty of jobs for readers. Now as you may have guessed, after you read a script you have to say something about it, so just being able to read doesn't really get you the job - you have to be able to digest and regurgitate the material in marketspeak.
Marketspeak may or may not exist as a word, but what it means is that some Studios don't really care whether you think the script is any good, they care if you think it might make money.
This might also mean that it is good. There's some really complicated system of analyzing scripts that is all entered into a computer which is supposed to say whether the script is going to be a hit. If the producer you work for actually is interested in good films, then you're lucky.
And he or she might be able to converse with you at a higher level than marketspeak. This might be a good moment to remind ourselves that films are many things, from shorts, docos, nature films etc to Titanic type films. It's important to realise that the words Film Industry are significant.
Film is an Industry, just like making cars, and on one level is rightly perceived as such by the major studios. At the big end it is:Using Harvard Multiple works by the same author(s) in the same year.
