Here are three “wisenugs” I took away from my interview with a professional filmmaker…

  1. Work as hard as you can and don’t give up. Persistence is key.
  2. If you have the money, get into a good film school program. You will make connections that will become invaluable later in your career. But if you don’t, just don’t.
  3. Watch the films of Wong Kar-Wai.
