If you want to “Direct” film, I would absolutely go to film school. I think there are a lot of misconceptions about what film school is and of course all of them differ from each other. If you are looking to become a After effects guru, film school isn’t the place to go. There are a lot of things in the video and even film world that are not taught in film school but if you are interested in “Directing” I’d say the different jobs you learn in school will get you on that track faster.
I wouldn’t over look jobs like colorist and such though, if you’re good at math you can really take on the specifics of color or CG effects and get paid quite well.
