If I could make a living doing what I love most, it would be working on videos. Videos are the very soul of our country; from television shows to commercials and public service announcements. In making videos, I achieve a rare moment of nostalgia and giddy boyhood that has been abandoned long ago due to social norms. When I am able to make a video, I can let go of any petty stigmas and just make what I am tasked to make. Although not a physical entity, video can change the world through influential commercials, exposing truths, and broadcasting events live for the public, all of which are things that I would happily do on a daily basis. Everyone wants to make some money at the job that they want obviously, but, if money was not an object, a career in video would be just what I want. In going for this goal of mine, I would certainly have to buckle down and increase my ACT score. I would also have to get a video camera and editing software myself and begin making prototypes for potential clients to view. Entering in film festivals would not hurt either nor would networking with local videographers themselves. If it came down to it, I would be willing to move and give up everything to make my dream a reality. It is just a sad truth that not everyone can do just that.
