Transcript of Directing
While the practical aspects of filmmaking, such as finance and marketing, are left to the Producer, Directors must also always be aware of the constraints of the film's budget and schedule.
In some cases, Directors assume multiple roles such as Director/Cinematographer or Director/Writer.
Being a Director requires great creative vision, dedication and commitment. Directors are ultimately responsible for a film's artistic and commercial success or failure.
The Director is the driving creative force in a film's production, and acts as the crucial link between the production, technical and creative teams.
Directors are responsible for creatively translating the film's written script into actual images and sounds on the screen - he or she must visualize and define the style and structure of the film, then act as both a storyteller and team leader to bring this vision to reality.
Empire of Dreams
Dir. Ken Burns
During pre-production, Directors make crucial decisions, such as selecting the right cast, crew and locations for the film.
They then direct rehearsals, and the performances of the actors once the film is in production.
During post- production, Directors work closely with Editors through the many technical processes of editing, to reach the final cut or version of the film.
