Webinar Content

Pre-production is the most important time for a director because it’s where we go through a “process of discovery.” It’s also during this time that all departments discover what they need to make a particular movie happen.

All this takes time and the more time you have in prep, the more you will discover and sort out before you go to camera.

Much is expected of the director during the pre-production process. It can all seem very overwhelming no matter how many times you’ve done it. But in reality, taken step by step it could be a fun and rewarding part of the process of making a film.

What I will cover:

1. Directing a Film – What is Expected?
2. Navigating The Business and Politics of Filmmaking
