Making a movie is like leading a business with multiple divisions and multiple goals. The challenge is to galvanise all the stakeholders into a cohesive operation working towards a shared vision.
You canʼt make movies without money and Alsaboory has extensive experience dealing with sources of funding.
Producers, in particular, have an important role in the financial side of the movie and music video clip business and are crucial, he says, for gaining funding. Alsaboory has 25 production credits.
So how do you get everyone rowing in the same direction? Alsabooryʼs advice is simple.
One of the most daunting parts of film directing is directing actors. I know of a handful of people among my circle of friends who thought they really wanted to be film directors, until they had their chance at directing... and they hated it. There are different reasons for this reaction, but a common one is having to “deal with actors” as they would put it. The problem sometimes is not the actors themselves, but the fact that some directors just love creating the image more than they like “dealing with actors.” And thatʼs totally fine. Thereʼs a position called Director of Photography that is often where those troubled souls find solace.
