Directing in a Writer’s World

SFA Assembly Room

A look at directors of episodic television.

They say that TV is a writer’s medium…as opposed to film that is a director’s medium.  If that’s true, then what does that mean for the director of a TV series?  Have you ever noticed how most episodes are directed by different people from week to week?  How can a director maintain the feel and vision of a series when they are coming in for 1 out of potentially 22 episodes of a season?  Come hear from veteran and new directors of episodic television on how they manage, what they see their role as, the rewards, and the struggles of directing television.

Panelists: Tom Verica, Dave Semel, Jonathan Prince, Rob Schrab
