Directors should FOCUS in Filmmaking

In filmmaking, if you’re on time your late, Be professional, organize your set to tell the story not to impress anyone, forget the director’s chair, turn off your cell phone and stay close to your actors.

There are different directors and different people, but it is very hard to work with directors who are not focused on their work, who answers the phone constantly while shooting and doesn’t seem to care about the actors performance, and it is also frustrating for the actors to notice that their director focus is on his phone or something else.

It must be frustrating for either party to have this feeling and vice versa, when you want the best from your actors then show your focus, your concern and they always want to get feedback from you the director.

Always put your shoes in their place and see how you feel when you are not focused, it is not easy to act and try to deliver the best, to portray a character, so be close to your actors, let them feel the we want the best for their performance and they will always look forward working with you for the future.
