Let me introduce myself first....
I'm a freshman at a small state school in Mass majoring in film production. Right now I am thinking of transferring because the school just does not click with me (Thats another story, lol).
Let me tell you this first: I love film. I love making work that people can admire.I want to be a part of this field for the rest of my life.
But I also love writing. I think that it is the best part of filmmaking for me. It comes natural and it's fun!
SO.. lately, I have become VERY worried on getting a stable job right out of college. I've done endless amount of research on this site and others and cannot tell you guys the amount of times I saw this sentence: "Film majors are useless you dont need it to be successful, waste of $, it won't get you anywhere, you'll be waitressing for the rest of your life."
So here is my dilemma: I want to pursue filmmaking. SPECIFICALLY screenwriting. (This may change, however I am very confident right now)
I ask you, what are some useful majors that can help me put my foot in the door of the filmmaking business but can also be a reliable fallback if things don't work out? I was thinking of English. But I'd like to hear some other opinions.
And if you could, throw out some colleges that come to your mind.
