This usually occurs on the first day of classes. Everyone can't wait to finally learn how to use a film camera.

The second stage is: Confusion

They are gonna give you a camera and tell you go and film something cool.

The third stage is: Fear

There is not only one thing you fear, there are so many things to fear. What if your film turns out completely black? What if nobody like your film?

The fourth stage is: Acceptance

This is my life. This is my path. I made this film. If people don't like it, that's their problem.

The Final Stage is: Reward

This stage is the best stage to be in. You finally realize that even if people like your film or don't like your film, YOU like your film and you feel like you have grown as an artist and a person.

Getting to the final stage is great, but this process doesn't stop at the final stage. There are times when you go right back to the first stage which can be hard, but going through this process is important for anyone to become the person they want to be. Even though the road can be hard, making films is one of the greatest art forms you can create.
