My name is John and I'm currently an undergrad sophomore at UCI in Irvine, CA. I'm a Business Economics soon to be Business Administration student so I'm all for business and everything in that field.
However, recently, I'm becoming enamored of the television industry, especially the television production business. I know college is the perfect place to consider what exactly I want to do for my future so I want to make the right decisions now. But I need your guys' help.
The thing is I'm Business Economics right now but I'm interested in film and media, especially television production. I checked on some college discussion forums and most of them agree that the film program at UCI is only decent if you want to become a screenwriter, which is not what I want to do.
Come to think of it though, I don't really know for sure what I want to do right now. I love to travel, so I really would like to travel with a production crew/team and I want to be on set when all the action happens. But these are just vague descriptions, I don't know anything concrete. I know I don't really want to hold a camera or do make-up or fix the lighting or be a stuntman -none of that technical stuff. I just want to be present when the action rolls and the scene starts shooting.
What do you think, do you know any jobs/positions/titles that may suit some of my description here?
Or maybe I should stick with my Biz Econ major and just business in general and maybe try to enter the television production/entertainment world through a business major/type route, like I dunno...interning at a network broadcast company, and then work my way up to production assistant, and then ultimately get to work on the set with the actual actors and directors, etc.?
So what do you guys think? What's the best route I can take now that I'm still relatively young and still have the time to make critical decisions and choices.
