direct a film

Post by sanarota » Mon Feb 16, 2009 10:07 am

How is someone hired to direct a film? I'm wondering because I want to be a film director. I mean, say you have no history such as films you've made and all you have is that you studied Film at college and university - how do you get hired and found out to begin with? Through your own amateur movies you make and put on Youtube, submit to the film festivals etc?

Well, to quote SF London itself-

"Gareth Edwards (Factory Farmed), has just had the World Premiere of his début feature MONSTERS at SXSW in Texas, and he told us that the film got greenlit on the strength of 'Factory Farmed'"

So I'm guessing entering the 48hours can make dreams come true.
