Director (Film)

The main point of contact for the look, feel and narrative structure of a film, a director visually interprets a script for short and feature-length pieces, TV programmes, documentaries, adverts or music videos. Involved in every aspect of the production process, from casting and reviewing storyboards to shooting and editing, long and irregular working hours are a given. A natural leader with an artistic vision and creative intuition, a director motivates and inspires both cast and crew to perform to their full potential, all the while remaining open and adaptable to changing circumstances, ensuring a production keeps to schedule and stays on budget.

Please Note: The world of creative careers is broad and ever-evolving. While our descriptions aim to capture the essence of a role, we appreciate that no two jobs will be the same. We’re always looking to grow, expand and add to these roles, so if you feel we are missing something please let us know!
