Have Your Basic Graduation Degree
Don't switch back to another webpage am not going to take a lecture about this now :). But the fact is fact..what ever may be your passion according to current trends every individual should have at least a graduation degree to support himself in the current world.you. Without having a proper degree u can't survive properly and u can't get proper respect from anyone what ever may be the industry. Degree brings you the dignity to your profile...and you must know that as a film director you have to deal with 24 crafts and you should have minimum grip and basics about each and every craft since you are the leader of the cast and crew. And your education will surely help in grasping new things quickly and also helps in knowing technical details well..for example..if you have a dream of becoming a good cinematographer then you should have minimum knowledge about science..you should know what a focal length is..how to calculate it these are all basic things to achieve all those u need education. So please have a basic degree. Because life is more precious than passion.
Go To A Film School
If possible please try to study in a film school...if u don't have a chance some how join as a assistant director under some reputed director in industry this is the second best alternative way you have so that you may gain some knowledge about film making but a small advice don't waste your time as a assistant director for years together always remember your goal is to become a director and you are learning as a assistant director that's it..once after gaining some confidence just come out and start your trails..always focus on your goal.
