Directors play a key role in creative aspects of films. They select and guide cast, writers, composers, technical crew, designers and editors, and ensure every component runs smoothly from pre-production to production and post-production. Some directors allow actors to improvise dialogue, while others control every aspect precisely. Some write their own or collaborate on screenplays, some edit or appear in their films, and some compose their film's music score. Participants will research a 30-minute presentation on a director of their choice (Hollywood, Canadian, Foreign, Male and Female) and give examples of a few films describing his or her style and genre.
