You actually have far more options available to you, and I encourage you to explore them. Los Angeles has the second highest unemployment rate in the country, and the entertainment industry in particular has been savaged in recent years. Hordes of young hopefuls pack up their cars and their dreams and move out to LA intent on working their way up the ladder, and few even get on a rung. There's steep competition for unpaid internships here. Landing an actual paying position, even one that pays less than a fast food joint, is even more difficult. It's a matter of supply and demand. There are few jobs in supply, and a high demand for each of them. My stepmom works at a major company linked with the industry, and has said graduates from Ivy League colleges and the top film schools have been turned down for mailroom positions.
If you're passionate about directing you shouldn't abandon it all together, but you should consider sturdier professional paths to pursue. I would go back to school and major in a more versatile field and perhaps minor in film. If your community college offers editing and directing classes you might benefit from taking them. If you really wanted a taste of LA maybe come out for a summer. UCLA Extension has a summer program as well as online classes in film. Try to find internships in MN at network affiliates or media production companies to gain experience and connections. After graduation aim to take a job with sustaining pay that involves some of the creativity that appeals to you with directing. Don't just limit yourself to companies that are directly involved in the media industry. Major MN based companies like Target have creative positions. If you're still wanting to come to LA after working for a few years, apply for a job. I would highly advise you not move to LA unless you have a steady job lined up and ample funds. In the meantime, you could save up to invest in some film equipment and editing software and try making a few videos for YouTube, your portfolio, and for fun and enrichment.
I've lived in LA the majority of my life and know many people who work in film production or with the media industry. It's like choosing a path that leads directly into quicksand.
