So, most of my friends, near and dear always ask that when I am going to make my first feature film. I was only 3 to 4 years old to the film industry even though I am in my thirties. I knew that time running fast and it always would give you a jittery feeling whenever a young director comes up with their debut feature film. But when I observe their career graph closely, most of them already had been in the film making process more than 10 years. 

Film making is a long process as it involves 24 crafts (now a days more), it always take huge crunch of your time unless you are from a film school or from filmy background families. But whenever you see some of the great works by some major directors, who made their first feature film surprisingly in their 30s or 40s, and most create their masterpiece in the second half of their lives.

The best way to become a director is to just go out and direct.
