Some would argue that directing is one of the most important roles in the making of a film. Ultimately it’s up for debate due to the fact that certain producers and production companies end up running the directors and the writers as they wish. Companies like Disney are used as examples of production taking over a projects. Just look at the amount of good directors that have left marvel projects in the last few years due to “creative differences.”
However, despite what production companies do or do not, it’s hard not to argue that directors are ultimately the reason films are good or not good. After all, directors are the ones that yell “action” and “cut” between each scene you watch.
A director, just like a producer, can choose what to intervene in, what to be a part of, and what to let happen.Ultimately, there are directors so great that their mere name brings up the thought of a great film. So what makes these individuals so great? What makes them stand out from the others who have been working as much as they have?
