Would I be Interested in this Career?

  • Yes, this is a career I would be interested in, however I do lack some of the skills required to become a Film Producer. I have always thought it would be a good idea to work within the film industry under a Film Producer as an animator or a voice actor. Also, it doesn't require that much in-depth thinking and complications with anything mathematical or scientific; not to mention the pay isn't that bad. Film Producers are also well known and recognized for their hard work behind the scenes.
