Hello everyone.

Came across this forum website and loved all the threads and information on it. I am 17 and from the UK. I am an aspiring cinematographer, like many people on this site. But this really is my passion and love nothing better but to film. Im lucky to have a reasonably good quality camera, a Sony VX2100E. I would LOVE a HD camera but ohwell, maybe in the future. Wasn't sure where to put this topic on the site because im asking for a couple of things, so i apologize in advance.

Firstly, im currently in college but would i need to go university for the career i want to pursue, or should i go straight into trying to get experience. Secondly, does anyone, in the UK, know where i can get experience, in a work placement. What is the best way to get into the industry? And finally, here are some of my films. I love doing sport shots, especially biking. So i have alot of short films of other subjects but here are my biking videos.

Any comments and advice would be great. I would like to work on my videos to make them better

I know you probably gets loads of posts like this, but any help would be great.

Much Appreciated,

George.

Yeah, that is a trap. But it's always better to be out working than on a forum.
