Making it onto the small screen as an actor is one thing but doing it as a director is another thing entirely. Director’s in film production companies in Kenya organize, facilitate and capture the desired footage that will ultimately make up a film. While their day-to-day responsibilities may differ based on the medium in which they’re working, they are always the authority figures on set. In most Film production companies in Kenya, directors have a hand in the creative process of all the three production processes. So even though s/he may not be editing the footage themselves, the director oversees that work is being done in their vision.  In the pre-production process, directors work on storyboards and frames, locking in locations, developing a shoot schedule and casting bit and guest roles. If the project is lucky, directors try to create a period of rehearsal before shooting but in the rat-a-tat pacing of film production, that’s a luxury that many series simply don’t have.

Directors find themselves working off-set during post production to shape the final product. As mentioned before, directors here take on a much more supervisory role and work closely with the editors.

When working on a TV film, there will be a number of first or second assistant director, sometimes even a third depending on how big the film set is.

Examine what the director does and pick up on how it all fits together; how the director works with the writer, the actors, the crew and the editors. While working and doing all you can to excel, leave a positive impression and build meaningful along the way. If you truly have a passion for directing, then you’re also going to find any means possible to create your own work.
