Recently I read a student who is attending a university here in New York City. She told me that she was able to create her own major and program her goals. What an amazing idea!
When you are undecided about your future career - business, teaching, and health the wrong way to go - students are guided to major in creative fields - film and/or communications at the top of the list. Everyone wants a creative career which they are passionate about. They want to write ... something ... anything.
Media always was an overly saturated field those numbers increasing. I'm not opposed to one following their creative dreams, but you also need a day job.
.... You are about to finish college or university. You need a job. What are you qualified for?
There are people who have the ability to go out and get a job and shape a career - while others won't work unless a job is offered to them - generally by friends or family.
Young people who are not skilled often have problems with authority figures. It's all part of this university/universe we came here to experience and document.

The woman in the video is riding the R Train - that's the one out to Ellie's World.
Linda and Ellie at Tribeca a few years ago. We share the same birthday and creative flair.
The Tribeca Film Festival begins Wednesday. Independent film remains the best way for creative people to get their messages out on an affordable budget- other than YouTube which gets better every year but it limited in time. Through my daughter Nikki I get to work behind the scenes and sometimes interview those on the red carpet. Hurricane Sandy is part of one man's documentary shot live from his basement as Sandy hit the Rockaways - interesting guy.
There are so many topics I would love to do an independent film about - I wouldn't know where to begin. "Fun and emotional cleansing with my clients" would be a great place to go. A producer pitched that theme, using my readings, to several of the cable channels, but it didn't get much interest. All has been said and done in metaphysics so unless one can find a new twist - the networks aren't interested. How about "Ellie interviews the first alien" - setting: aboard a UFO.
