What is Direction?
Making a film is not a one-person job, but it does need one person to guide all the different teams and technicians. This responsibility falls on the shoulders of the director. Much like the captain of a team, the director coordinates with the actors, writers and the crew to translate the words on a paper into a moving, breathing story. It is the director’s creative vision that the audience finally sees on screen.
In the Certificate course in Direction at Virtual Academy, you’ll learn the skills of a successful director through lesson plans carefully crafted by the industry experts. You’ll learn how to think like a director, how to find your creative style and how to interpret a story through your vision. The course focuses on all-round learning, from how different teams work to how a film set works and from film theories to scene analysis.
