Good Advice for Young Directors
On behalf of TV lesson.com my name is Joseph Adler and I’m producing artistic director gable stage in Coral Gables Florida.
It is difficult to give a place to young directors there so many ways to approach, this field I was going to say this business but anybody who thinks there is a business does not belong in theater. A especially a not for profit theater, I would say that there a traditional paths and then these days one of the best ways for young directors to get studied to form their own company. Get together with some of the actors they are working with those studied with and do some readings and then put enough money together to get a small venue and put on their own play.
A so many new theater groups have evolved from that kinda beginning its incredible how much can come out of that sort of endeavor, people getting together was put on a show and some amazing were captains, some amazing place get developed in that atmosphere so that’s one way to do it then of course there the
other traditional more traditional ways working for company, well in tearing to work as an assistant to a director. sometime stage managing although not every stage managers looking to become a director it’s certainly a great training ground for directors and if you go to work non-equity theatre and stage manage that can be a great path.
There are you know so many things to do but first and foremost I would say get some experience as an actor, I studied acting before I became a director. not because I ever seriously intended to pursue that
Kraft for my career but because at felt that as a director it would be you know just so crucial for me to understand the process from an actor’s point of view, so I think every director should do some acting thats
certainty and the course keep doing scenes get young actors to work with you and find any way you can
to get people to take direction.
