This isn’t a boring Seattle film school classroom. This isn’t an overcrowded college laboratory. This is life. Real Life. YOUR LIFE.
DO YOU WANT TO LEARN TO BECOME A FILM DIRECTOR IN SEATTLE?
Have you had a film idea you’ve been itching to write and direct? Have you read the books and even taken a few seminars but find you still don’t know exactly what you need to do to see your movie realized? If that’s where you’re at now, don’t feel bad about it. A great number of people graduate some very expensive film schools like AFI, USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, or even The Tisch School of the Arts at Columbia University, and they still don’t know the skills and lack the connections that are vital when it comes to making their own movies.
Becoming a film director is largely dependent upon your exposure and experience in the field. A good director knows every role on-set. They understand the job of the UPM (Unit Production Manager), the Assistant Camera (AC), the DP or Cinematographer, and they know how to communicate their vision and lead the crew. A good director also knows one more essential thing: how to turn their “vision” into reality throughout the production process. From executing the shooting script, to coming up with the shotlist with the DP, to directing the actors in the right way, a solid director has the ability to multitask as well as focus, to direct as well as inspire.
