    A lot of people never find what they really want to do in life, their real passion, or find it really late. You are among the lucky ones, this is a great thing! However, the world beeing what it is, and you beeing poor, you have to be realistic: the path to achieve your dream will not be a straight one!
     
    I know the system try to make you believe "your supposed to choose a working line, study it, than work in that path until you die. Work is not supposed to be fun, blablabla." Well, thats totally wrong and false! Your life will be full of different steps and periods, some of them being a necessary way to achieve, one day, your dream.
     
    If you can't study directly in video games, what would be the steps necessary to one day reach that? Think about it. Think about the problems your facing. Beeing poor? Start by working on that.
    You know the secret to people acheiving their dream? (singer, actor, game creator or whatever?) They KNOW its not a direct and simple path! You have to make a plan!
     
    You can't start directly with your dream game design/graphic/writing study... so what? Start by learning a profession you still find acceptable to practice a few years, until you get enough money to do what you really want. Comptability, science, whaterver you find not so bad. If that choice can be a bonus later in your dream job, its even better! (computer programmation, social communication, company management, etc.)
    Don't forget a lot of subjects will not be lost for future study, like english, mathematic, philosophy, computer, etc. And later... when the time come, it will go fast! Only studying the essential on your second and dream line of work. (game history, writing script and scenario, game design, game shedule, etc.)
     
    Lets say you start with computer programmation study, then finish school and start working and making money. You are not force to wait 10 years to get enough money to return to school... just take adult evening course at the same time, or even correspondence course from USA or Canada! I tell it again, without mathematic, english and basic course, it will go FAST!
    And then, in maybe 2 years of that... because you didn't surrender your dream, because you accepted to work a little longer, because you have make a plan... you will LIVE YOUR DREAM, something few people can do! And you will be happy, and having fun at job! Priceless!
     
    Your family love you and care for you, thats why they want you to take a secure path/job, at least to their eyes. But when they tell to "grow up", they talk of ignorance, and should take game industry more seriously. Its up to you to inform them on the subject, its part of life too.
     
    Game industry is SO MUCH MONEY! Look, im living in Quebec/Canada, and since 10 years, there is so many studio coming to Montreal city, hiring hundreds of people, years after years! There is more and more gamers, women being almost 50% of gaming community. Some country are developping their internet infractstuctures year after year, bringing millions more gamers each year!
     
    And you know... while every one had difficulty since 2008 and the financial crisis... industry closing and shutting down... well, gaming industry didn't give a fuck! It was almost untouch and as i was saying, continiously developp new studios and investing billions around the world. You can make serious research and expose a lot of great fact to your family about how secure game industry is. Its up to you!
     
    Ho, and this industry is worldwide, so you are able to travel, work elsewhere, see the world if you want. Working in Japan, South Korea is possible, and even if temporary, should be awesome! You are not limited to USA, and the salary is quite good!
     
    So... i wish you the best luck. And never forget, if you can't go from point A to point C directly, remember you can still reach it with a little patience by going trough point B!

    Another great entertainer died this year. This time it's Philip Seymour Hoffman, known for his role in the recent Hunger Games Catching Fire, Red Dragon, Doubt with Meryl Streep and Capone. Cause of death most likely drug overdose. May he find peace.

  7. Memnor liked a post in a topic by Frozen_arow in Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor: think twice about it!   
    The one thing I think a lot of people get hung up on when casting info comes out is how much the actors look like the characters. Like when they announced that Gal Gadot was gonna play wonder woman the internet flipped out because she "didn't have the body type". Or when Daniel Craig was cast to play James Bond and people were upset because his hair is naturally blond and Bond has always had dark hair.
    Listen, an actors appearance can change, they could surprise you with a break out performance (Cough, Heath Ledger, Cough)  so just stop freaking out about how a film you haven't even seen yet has already been ruined.

    So, its the story of Zack Snyder and is assistant working very, very late. Zack is a very occupied man, never have time to look at TV, he must read a lot of comic books and listen all the episodes of Smallville to understand Superman. No time for something else, meaning he never saw Breaking Bad and don't know the show at all.
    The assistant, about the same, he heard about the show from some friends. But not sure he understood very well...
     
    - Zack: "So... people on internet want that guy from Breaking Bad right?"
    - Assistant: "Yeah, they are crazy about him, i heard he is very good playing Walter White."
    - Zack: "What is the name of the guy already?"
    - Assistant: "Heisenberg, something like that."
    - Zack: "Is he German? How do you spell that?"
    - Assitant: "Dunno! Lets look at IMDB on the net."
     
    And so, the two man search for a few minutes.
     
    - Assistant: "Thats it, i found him!"
    - Zack: "You sure its him? He seem young no?"
    - Assistant: "Damn sure mr. Snyder, its the only male with Eisenberg in is name!"
    - Zack: "Allright, leave a message to is agent, we take him!"
    - Assistant: "No interview? Not even an audition?"
    - Zack: "Damn no, after pissing off so much people on the web with Affleck and Gadot, we better give them what they want and fast, or this will be a total crash!"
    - Assistant: "Oki."
     
    And so... history was made!

    to DemonsColt:
    We where at least two! 
    Its simply that most people are making total superficial choice or judgement this days. (valid for actor choice... or politician choice... etc.)
    Just look at the propositions and suggestions people where making for WonderWomen, Batman and Lex... 90% based on the look ONLY, not on talent/schooling and possibilty to transform as an actor.
     
    Thats the way the world is now, for better or worst.

    Ok so let me start of with the disclaimer that I do not have any actual experience with gamedeveloping or any of the sorts. I have however been in the same situation as you and may be able to give you some advice though I fear it might not be the ones you wanna hear. 
     
    When It comes to choosing college that can be difficult I know this very well, already when I started highschool I choose the wrong subject. I decided to take electronics because it seemed interesting and over the 2 years I attended there I discovered it was not really my thing so I did another bad decision and went into university with the intentions to reach offshore work. It worked out semi-well for the first year, until it caught up too me I am not very good at maths and where attending engineering courses. 
     
    So I had to bite the dust and stopped my university education and afterwards I found out that I would visit a career advisor and it made me realise I had been very stupid not doing it before as she pointed out a path for me I could take which would have gotten me offshore already from when I finished highschool. So I strongly advice doing that if you haven't already.
     
    Aditionally I understand that you pay for school in america, we don't do that here in norway so here and some other european countries you would potentially be able to reach your desired line within artistic design, storywriting, programming(?) without having money as a barrier what the school regards. Of course this is not an easy way out since there is a lot of paperwork etc that needs to be done for this to happen, but I atleast deem it as a possible way.

I tell it again, without mathematic, english and basic course, it will go FAST!
    And then, in maybe 2 years of that... because you didn't surrender your dream, because you accepted to work a little longer, because you have make a plan... you will LIVE YOUR DREAM, something few people can do! And you will be happy, and having fun at job! Priceless!
     
    Your family love you and care for you, thats why they want you to take a secure path/job, at least to their eyes. But when they tell to "grow up", they talk of ignorance, and should take game industry more seriously. Its up to you to inform them on the subject, its part of life too.
     
    Game industry is SO MUCH MONEY! Look, im living in Quebec/Canada, and since 10 years, there is so many studio coming to Montreal city, hiring hundreds of people, years after years! There is more and more gamers, women being almost 50% of gaming community. Some country are developping their internet infractstuctures year after year, bringing millions more gamers each year!
     
    And you know... while every one had difficulty since 2008 and the financial crisis... industry closing and shutting down... well, gaming industry didn't give a fuck! It was almost untouch and as i was saying, continiously developp new studios and investing billions around the world. You can make serious research and expose a lot of great fact to your family about how secure game industry is. Its up to you!
     
    Ho, and this industry is worldwide, so you are able to travel, work elsewhere, see the world if you want. Working in Japan, South Korea is possible, and even if temporary, should be awesome! You are not limited to USA, and the salary is quite good!
     
    So... i wish you the best luck. And never forget, if you can't go from point A to point C directly, remember you can still reach it with a little patience by going trough point B!

    A lot of people never find what they really want to do in life, their real passion, or find it really late. You are among the lucky ones, this is a great thing! However, the world beeing what it is, and you beeing poor, you have to be realistic: the path to achieve your dream will not be a straight one!
     
    I know the system try to make you believe "your supposed to choose a working line, study it, than work in that path until you die. Work is not supposed to be fun, blablabla." Well, thats totally wrong and false! Your life will be full of different steps and periods, some of them being a necessary way to achieve, one day, your dream.
     
    If you can't study directly in video games, what would be the steps necessary to one day reach that? Think about it. Think about the problems your facing. Beeing poor? Start by working on that.
    You know the secret to people acheiving their dream? (singer, actor, game creator or whatever?) They KNOW its not a direct and simple path! You have to make a plan!
     
    You can't start directly with your dream game design/graphic/writing study... so what? Start by learning a profession you still find acceptable to practice a few years, until you get enough money to do what you really want. Comptability, science, whaterver you find not so bad. If that choice can be a bonus later in your dream job, its even better! (computer programmation, social communication, company management, etc.)
    Don't forget a lot of subjects will not be lost for future study, like english, mathematic, philosophy, computer, etc. And later... when the time come, it will go fast! Only studying the essential on your second and dream line of work. (game history, writing script and scenario, game design, game shedule, etc.)
