A Look At What Makes A Director Great

Are you an aspiring director and want to know how to make movies? Then this interview of J.J. Abrams from YouTube channel, BAFTA Guru is for you.

Watching this ten minute video inspired and challenged me as a director. The man has a wealth of wisdom on what it means to be a great director and you could do worse than to glean from what he’s got to say.

Watch it. His filmmaking advice is hands down the best, ever.
