DIRECTING FOR FILM & TV - Notes by Nigel Barton

1. THE DIRECTOR

The Director is the key creative person on a film or television project. The so-called ‘Director’s Vision’ shapes the whole movie and all of the other determents involved in the making of the film – sound, lighting, production design and so on work in collaboration with this vision. In a sense the Director makes the film in his or her head before any shooting has begun. It is often the case that people do not understand the difference between the Director and the Producer. The Producer is an organiser, in charge of the budget, hirer and firer of the crew, the implementer of the project. The Director designs the film, orchestrates its emotional content and is the head of the creative side of the filmmaking process.
