6. Take some journalism classes. There’s a possibility that you will end up writing reviews or other types of features, maybe interviews, and especially in the beginning of your online entertainment writing gigs, news pieces. You’re getting the background for how to write about film specifically and analytically but that’s a big difference from writing for a wider readership than peer scholars. A lot of film studies majors I’ve edited aren’t as great with writing clearly and concisely and informatively as they are with the deep thinking on either too-broad or too-specific concepts. Also, you may hopefully get some editing experience in there, as that’s essential if you want to make a career out of writing about film and/or entertainment.
