When Should You Decide To Become A Filmmaker?

It's probably a question that many of you have considered: When should you quit your job and become a full-time filmmaker? What moment do people reach before they decide that this is the right life for them?

I recently launched a weekly advice podcast called Big Problems with Stephen Tobolowsky and this question came up via an email from a listener. After the jump, listen to the podcast and hear us discuss the question with Bradley King, a first-time filmmaker whose new film Time Lapse comes out on VOD later this week. We talk about when/how Bradley decided to take the plunge into filmmaking, the moment when Stephen Tobolowsky realized how profoundly people could be affected by his acting, and why Starship Troopers made Bradley cry.
