An education is never a waste. Never! I have a Political Science BA, but Ijust started doing corporate videos. How? By getting every business experienceI could. Attend video industry conventions, take free gigs, work with your local cable access TV channel, focus on classes that have direct usefulness for you (FCP, Adobe, sound, etc.) and look at http://www.lynda.com.

Having a non-related degree allows me to talk with people on a wide range of issues, and when it boils down to it, videography is nothing more than a business. How you promote yourself and your work is at least as important as how technically proficient you are. There are plenty of starving “artists” out there- but the guy who can talk to the producer/CEOintelligently will get the job.
