Dalmatian Jaws can tell you all about deep and creepy obsessive love.
Did you get those flowers I sent you?
LivingHell: if you have access to sets and folks that will teach you the basics, and you're getting out there and actually applying that knowledge to things you're actually shooting, FORGET FILM SCHOOL. At least for now. It's only worth it to go to a GREAT one for the contacts afterwards. In the meantime, get a degree in something else so you have OTHER knowledge to bring to your art (history, biology, something like that), travel to other countries if possible, and gain worldly knowledge. Let your "on the ground" experience serve as film school for now. And, above all, READ as much as possible, both fiction and books about story and filmmaking. Austin is a great place for indie cinema, make use of it!
That's my wise counsel that you did not ask for. Enjoy.
