How would you define the actual role that a director is supposed to fill
Without wanting to sound cheesy I guess you have to be the eye of the storm. Its an incredibly difficult role to both control the running of the shoot and the crew plus keeping true to the artistic intention. It probably gets a little easier as time goes on and Ive been very lucky to have had some great help and guidance so far.
Would you say you have a signature directing style and creative worK process
I think every creative does. Everyone has different references and ways of understanding. Its just a matter of having the courage to stick the course with a particular style.Finding that style is the really hard part. Especially taking into account the cost of running a shoot.
Relatively how hard is it to ` make it ` in the directing world , and what skills help this
I think its becoming harder and easier at the same time. Its so much more accessible now but this gives way to much greater competition.You have to be able to communicate withe a great variety of people; sometimes simultaneously.Having a clear vision is the key however. Being able to be flexible without compromising your vision only helps further.
