Take a kid of a single mom/cinephile who's not a fan of sitters and you get a kid who was carted off to films before they could walk. Being that kid, that's where I learned to love the Cinema.
I got bit by the filmmaking bug later on when I found my uncle's Canon 814 Super8 camera(still an awesome camera, btw).
The icing on the cake was when Dino De Laurentiis came to my hometown of Wilmington, NC to make Firestarter. One major shoot was right down from my house. I watched them every night while they were there, and I was hooked.
