Shooting a film, whether it’s a big feature film or a short YouTube video, takes a lot of admin and scheduling abilities. At The Michael Group, we provide directing services to help ease the load. Our seasoned directors will ensure that your shoot day goes off without any problems.

So how do we do it? By scheduling a highly efficient crew, scouting locations, hiring equipment and organizing time schedules we are able to make shoot day feel like a breeze for any up-and-coming producer.

What Does A Director Do?

Simply put, a film director controls how a film is made. They will work closely with other members of the film crew to decide on a cast, finalize the film’s script and chose a location. They are also responsible for maintain morale and inspiring actors and film crew to give their best performances. Film directors have to keep in mind the film’s budget at all times, to ensure that their artistic vision is a financial possibility.

There are many different types of directors, from those who have a very hands-on attitude, and others who are slightly more laid back. At the Michael Group, our directors work directly with you as a producer to ensure that your artistic vision comes to life.

How Can Directing Services Help You?

Organizing a shoot is a complicated affair, often involving large numbers of people and equipment. If you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s very easy to become overwhelmed by the sudden responsibility, particularly if you’re personally invested in the outcome of the film. This is why The Michael Group offer personalized directing services to make life easier for people looking to produce a video. But what will you actually gain from having a director?

  • Before Shooting

    Before the shoot even happens, a lot of work has to go into organizing a schedule, figuring out a location and hiring talent to participate in the shoot. And, don’t forget all of the equipment that has to be transported to the shoot location, along with the crew who know how to operate the equipment.

    That’s a lot to remember and organize, particularly if you’ve never done it before. Lucking, our seasoned directors know exactly how to make shooting day scheduling a breeze by taking that responsible out of your hands.

  • Shoot Day Scheduling

    On shoot day, everything has to run just as scheduled. Although film sets can often look chaotic and out-of-control, everyone has a job and everyone knows what their job is. It’s up to the director to make sure that everyone knows where to be and what to do, and that the shoot functions as smoothly as possible. Of course, mistakes can happen along the way, but minimizing errors is key to ensuring that everything runs efficiently.

    On the day of shooting, everything will have already been organized and scheduled properly with the help of The Michael Group’s directing services, so you can rest assured knowing that any chaos is totally organized. Our directors will also make sure that your artistic vision materializes, and will work throughout the shoot to ensure that everyone strives to create the best video you could want.

  • Post-Shooting

    Although you may think that your admin days are over once the shoot wraps, in reality there is a lot to do post-shoot. Luckily, our directing services will ensure that equipment is returned safely, that locations are left as they were found and that all staff members, crew and talent are paid on time.

At the end of the day, having seasoned professionals organize your video shoot will ensure that shoot day scheduling is easy and uncomplicated. At The Michael Group, our goal is to make your life easier while simultaneously bringing your vision to life.
