Recently, I’ve been playing the promo for the new series of the British teen show Skins over and over.
This leads me to my next point in that as I get closer to graduation and career choices start opening up for me, I realize I wouldn’t be averse to producing and directing a commercial. What some others see as commercialism, I see a possible venue of self-expression and creativity. Remember, a good commercial can still be remembered even decades from now. This is why I’m taking a few PR and advertising classes so I can better understand how promotions and ad campaigns really work and fuse them with my filmmaking know-how. I definitely recommend this path for those in the Radio-Television-Film major who aren’t quite as artsy and a bit more pragmatic and mainstream.
Janel’s film student tip: A film degree doesn’t mean you have to make feature lengths or TV shows. Fuse your major with another, in this case advertising/public relations.
