Opening Banter: Someone actually wrote in a question for Chris.In Advice Corner with Chris Evangelista: Jacob Chandler from Mississippi writes in:

"Hey guys!  I have an advice question for Chris and whoever else happens to be on the show. I listened to your response about film writing and whether or not you need to go to college to make it in that world. I have a follow up question about filmmaking itself. I've debated for a while on whether or not I need to go to college to be a filmmaker. I am currently taking a break from college now to think it over. I'm not sure if all the thousands of dollars in student loans and such is worth an education I could get myself from research and self application. Plus I have also heard that getting jobs in this field is similar to writing in that no one looks at your gpa or what college you went to. They look at your previous work. Can your answer on getting into film writing apply also to filmmaking as well? Or am I just crazy and I should pay the cost to get the career I want?  Thanks so much! I hope this becomes a regular segment."
