This outlines how much money goes into the production of film and with that investment you would want to make sure that you have a good chance of a healthy profit margin. This brings us to the question of what factors give a film good chances of success? Some might say a good producer, some might say a good cast, we say nothing is more important than a good director.
The director of a film is the person in charge of the creative processes that brings a film to life. They will use the script to direct the cast and technical crew in the direction of their vision. This means that all the visual and dramatic processes revolve around the decision-making of the director.
