Not everyone regrets getting a film degree. Not everyone sits behind a computer every day doing "blog-journalism" thinking maybe he should have gone with his instinct and gotten a journalism degree. Not everyone sifts through every story printed by Miami media every day only to find former classmates succeeding, and feels at once a bit of school pride and a twinge of ugly jealousy. Of course, not everyone decides to spend most of his extra college time hustling freelance writing gigs and running the student radio station instead of studying for cinematography exams. Lesson: If you put a lot of dedication and extra work into a chosen field, you might actually succeed. That's what I learned today when I read the Miami Herald's piece about the Miami World Cinema Center.
