Studying for Your Passion

If you are about to enter the University of your Dreams, do you already have a clear idea about what course you are going to get? Are you sure about the lessons that you would like to study? When I was about to go to college, I also had the dilemma of choosing the course that can help make me a lot of money or choosing the course that I have always wanted to take which is film making. I have to tell you that it was not easy. I had to consult with so many people. Finally, I consulted with my parents and I am extremely lucky that they told me that I should follow what I feel is right for me. I know that most parents will say otherwise. When I heard my parents’ approval regarding film making, I knew then that I was on my road to fulfilling my dream.

Often times, I have heard other people advising people that they are close to, to just study the course that is the most in demand, the course that will give a lot of cash in the future. While this may seem practical right now, a lot of people end up hating the course that they have chosen. They lose passion for studying and sometimes, they drop out.

This has already happened to some of my classmates in other subjects that were learning different courses from me. They ended up not liking what they had to do so they either switched to another course or they just ended up working early because they do not want to study anymore.

There are times when people who are analytical and very straightforward might think that passion is unnecessary in order to achieve things but here are just some of the things to remember:

  • Being passionate about something will help the appreciation for the craft to grow fonder. I liked film making from the very beginning but in the end, I really loved it.
  • Studying will become easier because things can be easily understood. You have to admit that sometimes, it is hard for you to study some lessons because you do not understand why you need to study that lesson in particular. If you are passionate about what you are learning, you tend to forget to question the need to learn because you already understand the reasons why.
  • Studying for passion can make you more truthful and you will tend to accept reality easier. I know that in film making, there are some things that I still have to improve and instead of getting disheartened, I strived and I am still striving to make things better.

I have to say that during the whole time that I was studying, I never felt a burn out. I was always on the go, I was always ready for new adventures that was always related to film making.

Some people have said that once people already see the money that they have always wanted to get, they will forget about their passion or the things that they have always wanted to do but what if the two can be integrated? Won’t that be better? Some people who are working for money may be happy that they are increasing the amount of money that they have, they are increasing their net worth but is the money worth every pain, every effort into doing something that they are not passionate about? If the time would come that you have to choose, what do you think will be your best choice? I chose to study for passion and I do not regret it one bit.

All Time Classic Film

I have always said that I love classic films. There is just something so intricate and special about each classic film was made. Right now, the graphics and the items that are used to make videos are already highly realistic but there are instances when because of this, the story line and the main lesson of the movie become lost in translation. Admittedly, a lot of movies are being made every day and while a lot of these movies are appreciated, just how many of these films will still be remembered in the future? How many films will still be labeled as “must watch” films decades from now?

Classic Films to See

It would be hard to limit the films that I would recommend to be seen right now but I have chosen quite a few which I feel should be given the attention that they deserve. These are just some of the classic films that are just great.

  1. The Godfather LogoGodfather – While this film is still considered to be a bit new since it was made in 1972, you will still hear some people saying that this is a must watch film. It was made well and it is very much considered a masterpiece because of the awesome casting and of course, the great story. The story is about a man who is forced to take over the family business. It does not sound like much, right? You may think this way until you see the movie and you realize just how complicated it is.
  2. The Ten CommandmentsThe 10 Commandments – Religion is always one of those things that most people do not want to talk about because people have different beliefs. Yet, a lot of people did not complain that they watched this movie that was shown on screen in 1956. There are a lot of movies about religion already made but this is definitely the best one to see. From the cast, to the story lifted from the bible, this can be watched all over and over again.
  3. CasablancaCasablanca – A classic film list will not be complete without a great love story. The Casablanca is a great love story that will manage to touch people’s hearts wholeheartedly even though it was created a long time ago in 1942. A lot of people who have watched this movie say that they like to show it to others. Love stories never grow old and this movie just depicts that.
  4. Gone with the WindGone With the Wind – Who has not heard of this movie? It seems that people are not allowed to go on with their lives without watching this. The cast of the movie is great and it contained songs that are very easy to hear for the ears. The story line at that time was still something new and it managed to get a lot of great reviews then. It is still getting good reviews now.

These classic films that I have mentioned are just some of the films that should be watched. There are still a lot more that are waiting to be discovered. Take time to check out the various classic films now to see its difference with modern films.
