Have you ever wanted to be able to make a living off your passion for film? Well, with the right guidance and some serious game-play you can achieve anything… including being able to afford a nice place to live and being able to afford the luxury of renting a car.
It might not seem like it, but life in San Andreas can be incredibly luxurious. The city itself is a paradise, offering gorgeous weather, stunning scenery, and plenty of opportunity for employment.
It seems fitting, then, that one of the first luxuries you’ll be able to enjoy is the ability to make a living off your passions for film and art. All you need is an affinity for cars and the desire to pursue a career in the movie industry. Fortunately, this is something you can do. In this article, we’ll introduce you to the glamorous world of movie making and show you how to get started.
Before you begin your movie career, you’ll need to decide what version of San Andreas you want to use. It’s worth noting that the current build of the game is substantially different from the version released in 2010. This means you’ll have to purchase or generate a new vehicle of some sort to get around in. Fortunately, this won’t be difficult. The game’s creator, Rockstar North, regularly updates the game to keep it fresh. This means all vehicles in GTA V are highly likely to be functional and unique. This also makes modifying vehicles for your own use much easier. If you have a hunch about which cars will be most useful to you, you can use the in-game browser to lookup vehicle information.
As we mentioned above, there are a variety of jobs you can take on in GTA V. Most are fairly standard and won’t require extensive training to be able to perform. One of the more involved jobs is that of a movie director. Much like a real life director, you’ll have a team of employees working under you. These are the people you’ll need to micromanage to get the best performance out of.
While it’s not necessarily difficult to become a director, it is certainly prestigious. This is reflected in the fact that almost all the jobs outside of construction that you can take on will require you to be at least a level 3 director. So if you have the drive and can handle being in charge, this could be the job for you.
The Tools Of The Trade
As a movie director, you’ll need to have all the necessary tools of the trade. Thankfully, this will be no problem. GTA V will arm you with all the equipment you need to make a movie. This includes cameras, tripods, lights, sound equipment, and more. You’ll also have access to a large number of props and costumes, which you can take advantage of. Plus, you can always use the in-game browser to lookup equipment information if you’re struggling to find a particular piece.
The Making Of A Movie
Once you have your gear, all you need is a good idea. This is what Hollywood is known for, right? Well, it’s a little more complicated than that. You’ll need to actually make a film in order to produce any revenue. This often involves a lot of trial and error. You’ll shoot various scenes, some of which might even be usable, and then you’ll have to edit the footage to create a cohesive story. You’ll also need to write a script, craft a marketing plan, and more. So it’s not enough just to have an idea. You’ll need to put in the legwork to make it happen. Some would even say that pursuing a career in the movie industry is a lot like climbing a mountain. You’ll need to gain experience and make a variety of mistakes before you can finally see the light at the top.
The Final Cut
After you’ve had a good, solid career as a movie director, you’ll be able to afford the luxury of cutting up all your old projects into short films. You’ll be able to afford this luxury thanks to the revenue generated by your latest movie. This is where the analogy to climbing a mountain comes in. You’ll need to finish the final cut, master sound, and complete the project in order to see the fruits of your labor. Once the project is done, you can sell it to the highest bidder in town. Or you can keep it for yourself and show it at film festivals, putting yourself firmly in the spotlight.
If you’re looking to make a living off your passion for film, the sky is the limit. Just make sure you have the talent to back it up. Good luck out there.
