This course, designed by award-winning filmmaker Michael Wohl, reveals and explains the process of being a successful director.
To tell a story, you've got to know the story. Michael explains how to ask the right questions and break a story down into its various themes and objectives. Then, Michael gives his expert tips in communicating effectively and collaboratively with the actors and crew. He explains how to expertly plan a shoot from the initial "lining a script." You learn how to design the best camera angles for every shot. Next up is a collection of videos that teaches you the importance of developing a uniform visual, camera and editorial style to put your individual stamp on the storytelling process.
So if you want to be a director, or become a better storyteller, watch this incredibly informative and inspiring course by the best filmmaking educator in the industry and one of our most popular trainers: Michael Wohl.
It was nice to watch this course. It became a lot clear to me, what is the role of the director in a film, and in the shooting location.

I'm a location soundman, and i've been around production for a while, i've shot, and I've edited. I am now one thousand percent more confident than i was 93 minutes ago. I remember michael from the final cut trainings and always liked his style. This series might be some of his best work, and this is the only one i've watched so far.
If i were running boom on a movie and the director turned to me and said, Hey, i gotta hit the bathroom, can you direct the rest of this movie, I totally have the confidence that I could now.
