Film schools are so ridiculously expensive. However if you have the money and are really interested I know there's an arts school in San Francisco that has a program where you can check it out and stay for free for 3 days and see if you like it.

If you're trying to film bmx or skating, film school and tools will be: a board, a camera, a fisheye, computer, final cut, a vehicle, good music knowledge, action sport knowledge, and the school will be on your own time practicing at parks/street/dirt. I'm self taught. I think film school is a joke in my own eyes

You learn more with actual experience. Just actually go out and take photos or film all the time.

college doesnt teach you action sport filming, it's really self taught from observing. Is a college going to teach you how to skateboard and proper fisheye technique? No

I'm just graduating from a four yr film school now and I can't suggest going to a school enough. Even just a two year will do you a world of good. It does also depend on what kind of film making you're interested in. Sure the focus is on narrative and commercial, but a lot of style and theory will translate right over to BMX/skate. If you're opinion of sports film making is a skateboard and a fisheye, then maybe school isn't for you; but if you want to be more original and build a style beyond that then school will do nothing but help. Just ask Will Stroud and Ryan Navazio!

All you have to do is look at good videos and re create. SCHOOL ISN'T THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES YOU GOOD AT FILMING holy shit why wont that go through peoples heads?!
