Jaws Banner
This week marks 45 years since Jaws burst onto American cinema screens and launched the concept of the summer blockbuster. (Though bizarrely, it was released in the UK in December). Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Peter Benchley’s novel stars Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw as the men responsible for dealing with a great white shark that terrorises any resident...

What We Have Learned

To really understand how to get into the film industry, we recommend you dive into some of our interviews and read the first-hand accounts from genuine success stories. But, if you’re just looking for a quick round-up of what we at FinalBoss have learned from our interviewees about how to get into the film industry, here are some rapid-fire tips:

Pursue a Passion, Not a Career

It’s not a hard-and-fast rule, but most people we’ve spoken to tend to find success by accident. Instead, they focus on pursuing dream projects and ideas, and find they get more involved in the film industry along the way.

Talent Counts, But So Does Knowledge

Talent in the film industry is very important. The problem is, there are a lot of talented people out there. What FinalBoss have discovered often counts for a little more is knowledge of the industry. Knowing how things work and how to get stuff done. That’s why these interviews can be so helpful when it comes to how to get into the film industry; because you can learn from those who’ve already managed to succeed.

Networking is a Powerful Tool

It’s a tired old cliche. But, it’s tired for a reason. The larger and more diverse your network, the more open you become to not just new opportunities, but new ideas and thoughts as well. People help lead us in different directions, which can be crucial when it comes to getting into the film industry.

Make a Change If You Want a Change

You’ll read countless examples about how to get into the film industry of stories that start with a big change. It could be making the decision to study, moving to a new city or quitting a job. Almost all the success stories begin with a switch in the status-quo.

Opening One Door Unlocks Many More

What you’ll discover when reading these interviews about how to get into the film industry is that many people find getting into one area of film helps them branch out and explore other roles. How this translates into success is that if an opportunity presents itself, even if it isn’t the perfect one for you, just opening yourself to a section of the film industry can help you achieve so much more, and get you where you want to go much faster.

Sometimes It Is About Luck

Right place, right time can sometimes play a role when it comes to getting into the film industry. Luck can make or break the success stories of a few individuals. Putting yourself into as many situations as possible for opportunities to blossom is the best way to boost your chances of getting lucky.
