Hi again, William and thanks for your reply.
Your goals and aspirations to work in film are very admirable! You can do anything you put your mind to, and I know from our past discussions, that you have some illnesses and learning problems which may be problematic, but your drive to accomplish your goals is amazing!
I agree that Hollywood would be too rough and competitive for you. You are very young, comparatively and starting at this age to gather all the knowledge and education you can, re: the film industry and becoming a director is a very smart move. Investigate film schools in your area, London, and try to find one where there is more of a one on one as opposed to a group (lecture) learning environment or the online classes that allow you to learn at your own pace which you mentioned. I am a teacher and know a lot about this. Every student has a different learning style which is most successful for them, so you would have to find the best film school that offers the type of teaching/learning method for you.
I understand that Veronica was helping you with other subjects related to the film industry, etc., but you posted this current question asking about living in Japan in our General Category, and did not address it to any particular Expert. Having answered many questions for you in the past, and providing this excellent information about living in Japan, etc., it would be appreciated if you could please rate my answer highly ("Excellent" would be appreciated) so I can be compensated for the time, effort and research I put into your answer.
If you would like to post a separate question for Veronica in Entertainment, as you have been doing, about the technicalities of script writing and the movie business, that would be up to you. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you what happened to her or why she hasn't responded to your questions. Perhaps she's on vacation.
