The Red carpet of the movie Atabai in the capital
Create a social presence for yourself, don’t just make a twitter and post things about your cat. You are what you make yourself out to be. If you want to be considered a director, act like it online. Don’t make your twitter bio say “IT Manager by Day, Director by Night” Learn everything, but don’t get good at anything to well, and don’t promote yourself as something else unless you want to be thought of that. If you promote yourself as an editor, and people see you as an editor, then the next project they have they will think of you as an editor and not a director. Don’t spend time developing a proxy career.
