Topic: What are the reasons for your interests? Analyze your childhood. How were your interests shaped from your upbringing?

The first movie my parents took me to was The Lion King. I don’t remember this experience because I was only three, but my parents tell me that I loved it. Ever since I can remember I’ve been fascinated with film. My parents both have a general interest in film and they both have a pretty good knowledge when it comes to movies. They passed this interest down to me, just magnified about 1000 times. As a kid, I watched the little kid movies you were supposed to watch, but I also watched movies that my parents watched. I remember watching movies like Fright Night, Double Jeopardy, and Kiss the Girls at a pretty young age. My parents were not thrilled that their eleven year old daughter was watching movies like this, but I really didn’t care. I continued watching them anyway. I grew up thinking that everyone knew about the movies and actors that I did. It wasn’t until middle school that I realized this was not the case, and it was very shocking to learn this.
The most memorable movie watching experience I have is watching Goodfellas for the first time. I credit Goodfellas with really igniting my passion for film. I remember everything about that experience. Never before had a movie captivated me like that. I remember that I never wanted that movie to end. After watching that movie, I wanted to see every movie I could possibly get my hands on. Not only did I want to watch movies, but I wanted to learn about them. I wanted to know about the director, the actors, the story and how it was made.
Film is the only thing I have ever been passionate about. I can’t imagine being involved in any other industry in my professional career. Film is absolutely what I want to study in college. I’ve looked at listings of all the different courses you can take with film and I want to take all of them. Each one of them sounds so exciting to me. My desire to learn about film fuels my drive to work hard in school so I can get into a good college. I want to be successful in my career, and in order to do that I know I need a college degree.
