Hey guys I am 16 years old and I live in Orange County. I am a junior in Highschool, and I have been in my highschool film classes since 8th grade. I love making movie and i want to be in the industry someday, what I am wanting to know is how do i get started into the industry what are the best steps to take.

also I have some questions about different jobs. I love working with the Camra so I was thinking becoming a camraman, but how does that pay? and how do I get jobs with that would I need to own my own 35mm and basically have everything, or just have a good real of my work?

also I like sound work and sound engineering, but same question applies would i need to own All my own equipment to get jobs in the future? how much does that pay on average?

basically I want to get every scrap of advice on the buisness of filmmakeing. How do i get jobs? What schools are the best? what Are all the jobs in the film industry, i only know the basics.

I know i am asking a lot but i am Very interested in becoming a cinematographer, and I truly love film. Thanks for the help.
