WORK HARD: I think this one is a given 🙂
MANAGE YOUR TIME: This also means take your time. Don’t rush through school trying to get out as fast as possible. Use the time you have in school to better yourself, and to be creative. Once it’s over you won’t have the same kind freedom again.
MAKE MISTAKES: If you’ve never fallen you don’t know how to get back up. Knowing how to problem solve and how to recover is an invaluable lesson. Try to make all your mistakes in school… what are they going to do? FIRE you?
USE THE EQUIPMENT: Take FULL advantage of the equipment. This goes hand and hand with taking your time. You want to be a Filmmaker? Than make some Films!!!!
PAY ATTENTION: Keep an eye on your classmates. Take notice of not only the people you get along with, but also the ones who ask guestions, create projects that you admire, and that seem to be passionate, ambitious and motivated!
NETWORK: Now that you’ve paid attention… create contacts! Try to work on projects with the people that stand out to you.
