A piece of advice that changed my life was from one of my high school teachers. He’d tell us to spend the holidays doing manual labour - whether it be bricklaying or tailoring - so long as we were using our hands and learning things not taught in the classroom. That’s what got me started on Adobe Premiere 1 back in 1999. It made me realise, by the time I was graduating high school a year later, that I wouldn’t mind spending the rest of my life making films. I meet a lot of high schoolers and even university students who have no clue what they want to do in life. It makes me realise how lucky I was. My advice to them: spend your holidays trying out different manual skills that you won’t learn in school. It could change the course of your life.
