10/11/2006 - WHAT IF YOU'RE NOT VISUAL AT ALL?
[BACK]

This could be a problem if your dream is to be viewed as one of the handful of master directors that have made their mark since film began. There are many directors who've had great careers and made hugely successful films, but they aren't considered by serious critics and film buffs as masters.

Chris Columbus has had an enviable career as a screenwriter and director. Most of his movies have made a ton of money (Home Alone, the first Harry Potter). But you won't find many lists where he's labeled as a master. He makes good films, probably gets them in on budget, isn't difficult...fill in a few more blanks on his abilities (and don't get me wrong: I think Chris Columbus has made many fine films). It's just that despite his success he hasn't reached the upper echelon of being considered a great director.

Guess what? Most directors don't reach the summit. Neither do most screenwriters.

But if you're goal is to make films that will be discussed for generations to come, a huge factor is how they look. How you use the camera. How "artistic" and "creative" you are.

So if your long suit isn't in the visual area, fine, if you're not aiming for posterity. But if you are, start studying the acknowledged masters and learn.
