Whether it’s a film or stage production, short or feature length, fiction, drama, sci-fi or documentary, or whether it’s a commercial, infomercial or a music video – the one cog in the production machine which overseas that all the pieces fall in place and no instrument misses a not – is the director.

The ability to orchestrate a film set, while maintaining clear and pleasant communication between all the film crew, as well as building up the confidence of all the talents on set – are what makes a director into a good director.
