The beta particles and gamma waves emitted by radioactive material aren't stopped by paper, unlike the alpha particles, which are.

Well, to pursue filmmaking you can do it any way you want. In order to actually work at it professionally (non-indie)... that's the tough part no matter how you do it. I'm assuming you mean non-indie? If indie, then just take a camera, get together a crew, and shoot away. You can send your films to film festivals, but you will still need a day job because there's no money in this. If you mean a professional, then I'm afraid it's far from simple. First of all, it's not as simple as getting a degree. Actually, you don't need a degree at all. It will give you some tools, but you will need to keep honing your skills and knowledge on your own anyway. That you can do anywhere and at any point. Honestly, if you don't come out with connections - and if you don't go to a school like UCLA, NYU, or BU chances are you won't be making any connections - it would just be a waste of time and money because the industry isn't based on that, so nobody will care. What you do need is professional skills, professional work samples, experience in the field, and connections in the industry. The latter is important, because this industry is basically based on connections. You HAVE to have some of those otherwise you can't move around and ahead. For that reason, and also because that's where the job is, you will need to live in the Los Angeles area (priority) or NYC (unless you're an indie). Now. The harsh reality is that the chances you (or anyone) will be able to do that and actually make money on a regular basis are very very slim. It's not like a regular job where you get a degree, go to an interview, and then you get the job. No. You have to work your butt off for a very long time (1-2 decades or more) and be extremely lucky. You can, however, get a degree that will give you some advantage, knowledge-wise, like business management, psychology, creative writing, acting, film, history.... But you need to understand that NO ONE starts out as a filmmaker. And that only a very small % of those who manage to break in at all (which is not a lot either) rely solely on filmmaking. The rest have regular day jobs so they can pay the bills. In order to do that exclusively, you need to become ESTABLISHED. And in order to stay in, you need to become HIGHLY-established. Which would take more time, work, connections, and luck. So what I'm saying is, you pursue it on the side, in your free time. That's how you do it, really. Go to a film school or don't. Learn from watching films. But you will still need to get practical experience - that's the only must. Just watching, analyzing, and learning *about* filmmaking is not gonna cut it. After a while of learning, getting practical experience, knowledge, developing the skills, etc., you start submitting your shorts to film festivals. Continue making shorts and submitting them - till you get accepted. Go to the festivals or any other event and network your *** off. If you play your cards right, if you impress people, and especially if you win an award, you will make connections. Those connections will remember you and your work, and they will give you minor opportunities. Those minor opportunities will give you more connections who will give you more and bigger opportunities. And so on. Since it's so hard to break into the industry - and then to stay in it - many filmmakers choose to take the indie route instead. So ask yourself why you really want to do this for and what you're even capable of. If it's purely out of love for films and making them, I'd consider indie. Some directors have found their way into the actual film industry through that, so you never know.

monkey around with cameras and film and other media - if you have talent it'll be seen and school never hurts

If you go to a good film school, the contacts you make there will be more helpful than just sitting in your house watching films. The film industry is very much a "who you know" industry.

Lovel Originally Answered: Does analyzing film reviews help me learn more about what makes a film of quality?
Well, it doesn't do anything in the way of the actual, physical act of making a movie. But you do begin to understand concepts like cinematography, choreography, locale, art direction, etc. Only you can do those things the way you see fit. After all, reviews are entirely subjective: what one person may consider the greatest film of all time may be largely disliked by others. Similar to playing sports: you can read up on rules and techniques all day long, but you'll never get a good grasp on things until you go out and play the sport yourself (though you'll be more familiar with concepts).
