Hello everyone! This is my first post on here and I'm glad to be a part of the community!

That being said, I have a few questions that I'm hoping I can get some help with.

I am currently in the process of finishing a degree in film from Full Sail University and will pursuing a Master's in Business Entertainment directly after and I find that the further I push and the more I accomplish in this program, the more open I become to alternative career options that, while still pertaining to almost all aspects of film making, aren't necessarily the "norm" when pursuing a career in the film industry.

As far back as I can remember I've always been in love with movies. The lights, the characters, the story, the idea of being whisked out of this world and adventuring into another... there is no greater feeling in the world, as I'm sure you all would agree. I tell you this because I hope that after you have read my last statement you will understand the gravity of when I say that my love of movies is overshadowed only by my love of video games.

I have been a gamer my entire life and it's been an amazing experience seeing games come from their humble and simple beginnings to seeing the newest and biggest games on the market now that rival the production values of most Hollywood blockbusters. But what excites me the most, and this is something that is becoming more apparent the more I learn about film, is how great of a story telling device video games have become and how powerful the medium is becoming as our technology gets better and better. The idea of a “Video Game” is no longer what it used to be and I think that eventually (sometime very soon in fact) the rest of the world is going to catch on to that fact and video games are going to be accepted as the valid storytelling device it’s become.

My question to all of you is this...

Is there a place for a future filmmaker in the world of video games? If so, how? Who would I speak to? Where is a good place to attempt to make this happen?

So many questions...but I guess the best one would to just ask if anyone has any advice...whatever it may be, any and all help/advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you all in advance for any help! Looking forward to your responses!
