The Film Directing
with Ela Thier

in this training, you'll learn how to:

Choose shots that will make you look like a pro – even if you’ve never directed before.

Fully maximize the moving camera – even experienced directors underutilize it.

Lead your actors to powerful and believable performances – consistently.
You won’t be on camera. Sweatpants welcome 😉

Tangara Jones, testimonial
It was great to see the process that a director takes to get actors where they want them to be. Ela, you have a wonderful gift of drawing things out of people that they never thought existed.
Frank Lewallen testimonial
I’ve truly never seen anything like it… and I’ve sat through thousands of hours of classes.

My short would be absolutely unwatchable and very probably uncuttable without your course. You are really great at explaining things and sharing your knowledge.
