I did my work experience in the Association for the Development of Cinema, Audiovisual and Multimedia. During this week (13th April-17th April), I have learnt a lot of things.
I’ve chosen to experience this job because first, my uncle works in this company. Secondly, I am also a film addict, I like watching all sorts of films, from animated films to films you must watch again and again.
This job is not related to my future career, because I want to become an engineer, and not a film director. Certainly, it’s a fabulous job but I don’t want to do it.
During this week, I have seen a film you must watch again and again: “M the cursed” (“M le maudit” in French). I have also watched a science movie that is going to be broadcast on the channel Arte. (I have understood everything because this film was on the Science program). I have also met all the employees. I have seen what they do in a year and I have learnt that they contribute to The Cannes Festival too.
A film director is a man who makes or broadcast a film. S/he must create what s/he wants to do. To become a film director, you must have a B.A in arts, and an M.A in filmmaking.
I love this job because it’s you who sets your own hours. This job is also good because you can act in your film or you can have some fun time. I think in this job you must be productive and that it’s quite difficult sometimes.
It’s awesome to work because you can do what you like. I think, if you choose a job you like, you are enthusiastic to work. You do what you like and you are paid. It’s also interesting to work when you learn many things from other persons too.
