Film Directors Offering Advice on Filmmaking

ridley scott oggi tomic

As a  filmmaker myself, I know that to some extent all creative ventures are based on what has come before.  It’s helpful to have a framework on how to approach the filmmaking process based on years of collective experience to build on and incorporate into your own approach to filmmaking. Below is a list of videos from well-known directors: Here is a list of videos from ten well-known directors to help you do just that:

First, one of my favourite film directors, Ridley Scott gives his advice to first time directors, and talks about his approach to editing.

Steven Spielberg gave a speech at the Academy of Achievement, where he talked about how he got into film, considering the audience in the filmmaking process, and listening to intuition.

Film director of films such as Shutter Island and Aviator Martin Scorsese talks about his experience in film school, his influences, and 21st century filmmaking.

Writer and Director of films such as Mulholland Drive, David Lynch talks about multiple aspects of filmmaking

And finally, George Lucas gives a speech at the Academy of Achievement on how following his various passions led him to becoming filmmaker.

I would like to hear your opinion and thought on advice from these filmmakers and directors?  Is there advice from your favourite filmmaker which was helpful to you in your career you would like to share?  Please leave a message below.
