The Curious Case of a Movie Director

Years ago, while discussing a favorite new movie with my college-friends, one particular remark always left me slightly uncomfortable. It was not uncommon to hear from them that the film was very well-directed. To my young aspiring film-maker mind, such casual mention of the profession of my dreams was sacrilege. “What do they know about directing?” I wondered within.

As laymen, there are not many professions we so critically remark about. Visiting an amusement park does not make us wonder about the architect’s skill. An electronic good does not make us critical of the engineering that has given the product its merits or flaws. Cinema and cricket seem to be the only professions in our country where almost everyone has a critical reaction. But then, these two are also our people’s favorite passions. So, we cannot really blame them!

Anyway, so I just wrote an article for this online magazine on leadership. And tried to share whatever I have come to realize to be the job of a director. You can read the article by clicking HERE.
