I’ve never had to write a director’s vision.I really dislike directing and anytime I took a class I promptly wiped it from my memory. So… I mean, I guess…
thankyoufive’s Comprehensive* List of How to Write A Director’s Vision
- Include the name of the show
- Say something like “What the playwright was really trying to get at was…”
- Talk about some memory you have that vaguely relates to the script and was obviously the universe telling you that you would one day direct your play.
- Use the word “truly” a couple of times.
- Mention that you’re proud of (or looking forward to working with, if this is for pre-pro… which it sounds like it might be?) the cast, crew and production team.
- End with a cute or thought-provoking quote from the play!
That was probably horribly unhelpful, but… that’s about all I got.
Alex thief-of-always? You’re into your directing class and enjoy it. Any pointers?
