James Cameron, Truck Driver

Wikipedia:

“After graduating [from high school], he worked several jobs such as truck driving and wrote when he had time.  During this period he taught himself about special effects:  “I’d go down to the USC library and pull any thesis that graduate students had written about optical printing, or front screen projection, or dye transfers, anything that related to film technology.  That way I could sit down and read it, and if they’d let me photocopy it, I would. If not, I’d make notes.”  After seeing the original Star Wars film in 1977, Cameron quit his job as a truck driver to enter the film industry.
