From the script to the screen, the director calls the names of the shots like Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, or Steven Spielberg, immediately evoking in our mind the images of pure magic these accomplished directors have brought to the big screen. They all have a common talent: transforming fantastic ideas into reality. Do you also dream of lighting up the screen with your artistic signature? Film directors have the eye to capture the subtlest of expressions and, at the same time, they can captivate us with larger-than-life stories using a mash-up of sounds, sights, and all kinds of emotions. Are you also passionate about telling stories and transforming visions into visuals?
