In 2005, after twenty years as a top TV commercial director, I was invited to lecture on film production techniques at the National Association of Broadcasters annual get together in Las Vegas. My classes were so successful, that I created three “How To” videos covering Camera, Lighting and Directing techniques. We sold over a thousand of these at $99 each. I’m pleased to present this one on directing here.
I will cover what I consider the necessary techniques here, garnered from thousands of hours on sets and locations around the world.
