I draw from my personal experience to demonstrate how a director works with both cast and crew. Throughout the year, numerous industry professionals visit my classes to discuss and demonstrate the magical art of collaboration. For me, this collaboration is what making movies is all about.
As a filmmaker, my main goal is get my entire production to “dream the same dream.” As a teacher, I do everything I can to nurture the dreams of my students.
