There is a lot of confusion between film direction & film-making. Film-making is creating or being part of the creation of a film. Any individual in the film production team can be called a filmmaker. Film direction is a specific job held by a specific person, the film director. Film director is the one who takes the viewers in a journey. He is the one who decides on that journey’s direction, meaning where the story goes & how long it takes. ‘Where’ the story is ‘going’ implies the Space & ‘how long it takes’ implies Time. Now, this balancing of the Space-Time equilibrium is the aesthetic sense or art of the film director. The skills required in order to execute the art, is called techniques of film direction.

The film director does not need to operate a camera or cut footage in editing. The film director needs to direct the cinematographer, the editor, the actors, and most importantly the audience watching the film. Film Direction is one of the most responsible and challenging jobs in film production. Directors need to understand human emotions, they must have ability to grasp technical processes, ability to work with different kinds of skilled professionals.
