Profession - DirectorWhen it comes to making a movie, there are a lot of roles to play. One of the most important roles is the director. The director is responsible for the look and feel of the movie.

Even before the movie starts shooting, the director gets to work. He helps decide where the movie will take place and what actors will play the characters in the movie. He takes the script and imagines how he wants it to look on the screen.

During the movie, the director watches as the crew films every scene. He tells actors how to say their lines and how to move. If he is not happy with a scene, he can make them film it over and over again until they get it right. A movie isn't complete until the director says, "That's a wrap!"

Once the filming is done the director still has work to do. He spends time in the editing room and puts together the scenes exactly as he wants. Finally, he comes up with a finished movie.
