Description

A film director is the equivalent to a conductor in an orchestra or the captain on a ship guiding its course and responsible for every aspect of the journey. A director is responsible for breathing life into the actor’s portrayal of the role. 
Generally, a film director controls a film’s artistic and dramatic aspects, and visualizes the script while guiding the technical crew and actors in the fulfillment of that vision. The director has a key role in choosing the cast members, production design, and the creative aspects of filmmaking. 
Class is partially in classroom and on location. Basics are covered visually in the classroom and then on location and actually go through the process of shooting a scene. We go through a table read with the actors, blocking, lighting, camera angles and coverage, screen direction, etc. while the entire time notes are given by the director to actors, capturing a viable and real production situation. We cover commonly made mistakes and solutions. Then footage is taken to the editor and edited in the classroom. The production process and the editorial process are explained in this video explaining the overall exercise and show the finished product. 

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone interested in starting a career as a commercial film director
  • Anyone interested in controlling a film's artistic and dramatic aspects.
