I feel the same way about any education. 
In today’s connected world, you are only as good as your curiosity.

My filmmaking education consisted of finding out what filmmakers I liked were watching, then seeing those films. I learned the technical stuff from books and magazines, and with the new technology you can watch entire movies accompanied by audio commentary from the director. You can learn more from John Sturges’ audio track on the “Bad Day at Black Rock” laserdisc than you can in 20 years of film school.
Film school is a complete con, because the information is there if you want it. - Paul Thomas Anderson 

Everything you need to learn and grow is already out there. For free.

The Zombie Master

Max Brooks takes his dad’s comedic genius, adds a dash of smarts, and funnelled through his neuroses (which often fuels comedians) seems to have created an intriguing narrative with World War Z.

These are the zombies that Brooks believes in: the ghouls that come for you, that you can’t fight. The zombies are his mother’s cancer. They’re the fear that his wife and his son won’t be O.K., which makes him check his phone every few minutes when he’s apart from them. They’re the car that killed a friend of his in high school as they walked across the street, Brooks just a few steps ahead. The zombies are anything that comes into your life, without prejudice, and destroys it. The zombies are: Life’s not fair.
