"In the last few decades, more and more people are going to college to further their education. It's hard to become a scientist, a professor, or a businessperson without getting some sort of college degree--but college isn't always necessary to achieve success. Some people are ready to enter the workforce right after high school. James Cameron was one of these people. The successful director has created some of Hollywood's biggest hits. From "Aliens" to "Avatar", from "Terminator" to "Titantic", Cameron has been making dreams--and nightmares--come to life on screen for decades. And what's most amazing about his story is that the famous filmmaker did it all without a college degree!"
The moral of the story is, don't let cost of college deter you from the enjoyment of filming. With the cost of camera technology coming down in price, as well as freedom to put any length video on social media sites like YouTube and even Facebook, which Cameron didn't have access to when he was coming up, take the opportunity to do so... Life isn't fair, with more and more rich kids sneaking into college and cost of college going up, don't let this deter you from following your dreams and most especially, ignore the haters! Remind you Jon B was a college drop-out, he started his youtube career after high school, quit the youtube thing, then got into college, later to find out it wasn't for him and restarted his youtube career!
Many don't realize how much James Cameron has sneaked in his previous work history into his movie, fucking hardcore!
Here's a new clip from a documentary set to analyze one of James Cameron's old movies from the 80s, Aliens...
When designing the hardware of Aliens, James Cameron wanted total realism, Weapons & Vehicles felt real world. The dropship echoed choppers in vietnam. The Armored personell carrier was essentially a tank. The pulse M41A rifle was like an M-16 with grenades. Following the Alien "truck drivers" in space aesthetic.
Matthew McConaughey has been very outspoken about college and how overrated it can be, some things just "can't be taught at school," more of a hands-on work environment... With more entrepreneur heroes like Elon Musky lowering college requirements at Tesla, as well as Google and IBM, hopefully this allows more people to succeed!
