DIRECTING - PRE-PRODUCTION

PREP IN PRE-PRODUCTION 

Camera techniques and blocking are essential in the way the story is "expressed" and flows on the screen.  As you’re combing through the script while VISUALIZING and noting the KEY ACTIONS of the actors to bring the story to life...if there is any particular type of tone or emphasis needed for a dramatic effect (for a particular anticipated audience response) you’re making key notes of these tips to draw in and mesmerize your future audience.  Clear notes and clear communication with the talented cast and crew will bring this about in a smoother way.


  • FULL SHOT...CLOSE-UP...LONG-SHOT...TILTED--YOU'RE VISUALIZING HOW EACH SHOT WILL BE CAPTURED ON CAMERA.
  • THE TYPE OF SCENES AND SHOT COVERAGE YOU WILL CREATE, ANY TYPE OF LIGHTING EFFECTS...DAY SHOTS?  NIGHT SETTINGS?...
  • WHAT'S NEEDED TO BRING ABOUT THE REQUIRED DRAMATIC ELEMENT?  YOUR SKILLED CREATIVE SENSES WILL SEE AND NOTE SUCH IN ADVANCE. 
  • ALSO, NEW REVELATIONS WILL OCCUR WHILE ON SET, BUT, START OFF WITH A SET FOUNDATION TO BUILD FROM BEFORE YOU ARRIVE ON THE SET. 
  • AS A DIRECTOR, YOU WILL GET THE BEST RESULTS WHEN YOU CAN COMMUNICATE YOUR VISION TO THE CAST AND CREW IN A MANNER WHERE IT'S LIKE YOU ARE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE.
  •  WHEN THE ACTOR NEEDS TO SHOW THEIR EMOTIONS TO ANOTHER CHARACTER AND IT MISSES THE MARK OF WHAT YOU'VE INTERPRETED, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FURTHER INSTRUCT THE TALENT ON EXPRESSING IT ON A LEVEL WHICH EVEN ENLIGHTENS THE ACTOR, WITH AN "AH!" AND "AWE!"
