  • Ron Howard Teaches Directing | Official Trailer


You have to understand one thing about directing, that every project you get involved in, ultimately is just going to find its way to breaking your heart. They say there are only seven stories, I think there might only be one story. We all understand stories. It makes us believe we can all direct, and we probably all can. We all have our own instincts. What we have to do is back up that instinct with something called craft. I really want to demystify the role of the director. I'm gonna stage a scene and let you watch me work with the actors. And, action. I felt today was a huge improvement. Are you nuts? Play to each other. "Are you nuts?" OK. You know? A beat of looking this way. Have the courage to face him though. Well but I thought it was great. Is this a moment of momentum and drive, or is this the conclusion of something? You know all these things intuitively, but as a director, you have to move beyond your intuition. There is no more powerful tool than a great actor making a strong performance choice. Collaboration fails all the time. Everything we do in this process fails all the time. You're in this role as kind of editor in chief of a lot of ideas. That alone will never really make the movie work. We all want the same thing, a great moment, a great scene, a great movie. This is what it takes, right? Ultimately, you are the storyteller. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how big your crew is, it doesn't matter how much money you have to spend. It's what you're capturing inside the frame lines that's going to have this impact on the audience, or not. Go out, find a story you love, and tell it. Very good work. I'm Ron Howard, and this is my MasterClass.
