VIDEO: Natalie Portman Sings Praises Of Assistant Directors

Watch this video from IndieWire.com

“Pretty much everyone’s role on a film is indispensable,” Natalie Portman said during a discussion at the Apple Store SoHo last week, singling out the first assistant director as an example. “Without a good first AD, your movie falls to pieces. And those are people who never, ever, ever get interviewed anywhere. And they make the movie. I feel like you could probably run a set better with a good first AD and no director than a good director and no AD. There are people like that who you never hear from, and we want people to have an idea about who these people are if they’re interested in filmmaking.”


The “Script Breakdown and Film Scheduling Online Course for Independent Filmmakers” is a 137 page pdf manual that takes you, step-by-step, through the proper process of breaking down a script and creating a realistic film shooting schedule.

This course is not just for Assistant Directors or Production Managers. It’s also for Directors, Producers and other filmmakers who want to have in-depth industry knowledge of the entire pre-production stage of making an independent film or TV series.
