Director

Industry: Film


All of the creative power…  Can you visually direct telling a story?  Can you imagine calling the shots and making the overarching decisions in how this story is told and translated behind the lens of a camera and onto a screen? Can you see how things should play out before they even happen? Are you prepared for the pressures of having the success or failure of something that millions of dollars has been invested into?

Directors are intimately familiar with all aspects of the making of a Film.  They give detailed directions to everyone else on the set to ensure that the resulting artistic vision is what they had originally imagined. This includes planning the lighting for scenes, consulting with the Director of Photography for how scenes should be shot, and working closely with the Producer to make sure that he or she agrees with the direction of the film.

To be a Director, a college degree in filmmaking or theatre is very beneficial, though not always a requirement as talent, experience, and successful productions are just as important. The hours are often very long and irregular during filming.  However, if the movie is a success, the pay for Film Directors can be significant.  And no one can argue with the sense of satisfaction that a Director feels when his or her film is released and dubbed a ‘must see’.
