Well it depends what life throws at you, and there's some luck involved, too. If you live near a lot of opportunity for employment in making entertainment, then go for it. If there's nothing near you and you have no means to move, or no means to get to a college that does class in that category, consider another MOS (Main Objective of Study) that's more appropriate to your geographical area. Also, I edited the previous post, do refresh that. I added A LOT. The military might be a great option. Sign-on bonuses are big right now and the schooling is free. Trade schools like Vo-Tech can be done during high-school years, and can be a good foot in the door / jump start especially if you can get certified (for example, in automotive, or computers, many Vo-Techs will let you get certified while you get schooling). You can get a higher rank for certain MOS-related field certifications (pay jumps up a bit), if you have them prior to entering the military, plus, military members get preferred placement in civil service jobs. Just make sure you can take the 2.5 months of pain when you sign up. It's tough but it's worth it, and you'll hit the ground running generally when you get back to civvy life. It's not for everyone though - but the discipline is great and it gives you much self confidence.
