Hey everyone! I'm new to this site, so I was hoping to make this my introduction...but to avoid a wall of text, I'll just get to the point!
I'm currently 20 years old, and I live on my own. I'm interested in doing some editing I believe. I played around with Sony Vegas a few times a year ago and I even made a video game advertisement (pretty much). I really enjoyed the whole piecing the videos together and syncing it to music. Adding effects was pretty neat too, which I enjoyed as well. But not as much. Likely due to my lack of knowledge on it.
I live in Denver Colorado, US.
I have my GED, and i am a minority. I'm Mexican and Asian...(Lolwtf?) Onl;y got my GED due to family and life issues.
Anyways, I would really appreciate any advice.
I'm not sure what in interests fall into.. editing or directing? Editing is pretty vast... so I am really lost.
My computer is pretty lame. Its a laptop, 3G RAM , 750MB video card, 2.0 CPU.
I got Sony Vegas 8, I had a Sony Handycam HD, but I sold it to pay rent last year.
Now I am back on my feet (some what) and would like to go to school. I have no parents to go to for advice, so like I said. ANY would be great!
A few questions:
Does schooling play a major factor? Or experience?
How long does it take to break into the industry?
Do I need a new computer? Is Sony Vegas good enough?
I got more but I cant think of it...
