Your English is fine. There is one thing universal in all film making worldwide. You have to have a story. Find something in Vietnam that is interesting and film it. There must be film production companies in Vietnam where you can work. Maybe Vietnamese television. Don't try to be everything and learn everything all at once. First learn how to use a camera, then learn how to edit. But the most important thing is the story. Without a story, there is no movie.
