Film, stage and television directors are responsible for shaping the creative aspects of films, stage productions and television shows. They read and interpret scripts and turn those scripts into live, filmed or broadcast productions. They make decisions in conjunction with producers, cinematographers, and editors and designers, and provide creative guidance to actors, dancers, hosts and other performers. Directors also coordinate the activities of studio or stage crew and technicians, to ensure that all technical elements of a production are correct. Film, stage and television directors work all over the state, either filming in any of our State’s stunning locations, or bringing professional productions to audiences in our cities and towns.
