Alright folks in this clip we're going to talk about how to become a movie expert. This depends I suppose on your definition of movie expert. If you mean somebody that just loves movies and has an encyclopedia like database of knowledge up in their head when it comes to the movie industry, then all you have to do my friend is sit down and watch a ton of movies and you're good to go. That's really all you need to do. Watch a ton of movies and you will become an expert in many things without even knowing it. To get into some specifics on what this could mean, becoming a movie expert, I interpret that as how to become an expert in any given field. How to become an expert director. How to become an expert cameraman, cinematographer, gaffer, or performer, actor, actress. And the answer to that is obviously there are many, many different ways to become an expert in these fields. Going to a university and making it your major, going to film school, taking classes that specifically deal with those specific areas of production. But funnily enough at the end of the day, what I said at the beginning actually holds true for the specific areas as well, not just gaining an encyclopedia like database of knowledge about movies, but gaining that type of knowledge for a specific area like directing or acting, one of the best ways to do that is to sit down and just watch a whole bunch of movies. That is the cheapest, most easy film school that's completely on your terms and you can learn a whole lot from studying the people that you consider to be heroes or experts in their particular field.
