    Do You Need A License To Be A Movie Director? Also How Much Money Can Be Made From 1st Time Directing? Besides asking for permission to shoot in a certain city or location, do you need a license or ID to be a movie director?

    Also how much money can be made for a first time movie director (if she/he starts down a good road in the long run) How much money can be made during his/her few years?

    • Curator says:

      Well, theres a lot of money to be made.
      Steven Spielberg’s first film was “Duel” in 1971
      At the age of 13, Spielberg won an award for his 40 minute film about war called “Escape to Nowhere”. At the age of sixteen he made his first feature length film, “Firelight”, which he played at his local cinema.
      Now Duel may not have made Spielberg much money.
      But then he went to do Jaws afterwards. He made a lot of money with those certainly.
      It was a great start. According to Wikipedia “The dinosaur roar sound effect that is heard as the truck goes over the cliff is also heard in Jaws, also directed by Spielberg, as the shark’s carcass sinks into the ocean. Spielberg has said that this is because he feels there is a “kinship” between Duel and Jaws, as they are both “about these leviathans targeting everyman.” He has also said that inserting the sound effect into Jaws was “my way of thanking Duel for giving me a career.””
      It was a good start, because it had many nominations for Emmys (2) and a Golden Globe and lots of other stuff.
      His current networth isnt much though; only THREE BILLION DOLLARS.
      YES Directing can make you a lot of money!
      But of course, He’s Steven Spielberg, one of the greatest directors of all time ever.
      So what about, lets say, Christopher Nolan, director of the Batman/Dark Knight series?
      90 Million. Can you live with close to 100 Million dollars? I think that’s survivable.
      Regarding the License I don’t believe you need one. But you should probably go to college and take classes on Film, theater, etc.
      “After moving to California, he applied to attend the film school at University of Southern California School of Theater, Film and Television two separate times, but was unsuccessful. He subsequently became a student at California State University, Long Beach.”
      But regardless he went to college and got an education in things concerning filming, directing, and cinema in general.
      “His actual career began when he returned to Universal Studios as an unpaid, seven-day-a-week intern and guest of the editing department (uncredited). After Spielberg became famous, USC awarded him an honorary degree in 1994, and in 1996 he became a trustee of the university.In 2002, thirty-five years after starting college, Spielberg finished his degree via independent projects at CSULB, and was awarded a B.A. in Film Production and Electronic Arts with an option in Film/Video Production.”

      So to recap quickly;
      You may not make millions first film. (In 1963 Steven Spielberg at age 16 made a short film with a budget of $500 and made $501, profit of $1)
      It matters about your start. (Spielberg’s first REAL film got nominated for 2 Emmy’s and a Golden Globe)
      People will see your work as great and when given a good script look to you. (He later did Jaws making him rich)
      You don’t need a License, but you should probably learn about the art of directing, cinema, and theater. Maybe try going to a good college for this?

      Hope I was helpful, I hope you become a great director. If you do send me a dollar.
      -Troy Kaastra

      Game of Thrones is a high fantasy television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.
      For its first season, the show received 13 Emmy nominations at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards and picked up two wins including Outstanding Main Title Design and Peter Dinklage’s first Emmy nomination and win for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama series for the episode “Baelor”, the only cast nomination received.
      At the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, the show’s second season was nominated for 12 awards, the 13th most nominations of the year and 1 less than in 2011. However, it went on to triple its 2011 wins, taking 6 creative Emmy’s of the 9 for which it had been nominated, giving it the most wins of the event and beating out competition from shows with more nominations including American Horror Story

      Hope it can help you!

    Project On Sandra Oh, Please Help!? I’m doing a project on Canadian Immigrants. I picked Sandra Oh because her parent are immigrants, and I’m obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy xD Could you list some ways she impacted Canada, thanks!

    • Curator says:

      At Sir Robert Borden High School, she founded the Environmental club BASE (Borden Active Students for the Environment), leading a campaign against the use of styrofoam cups. While at Sir Robert Borden High School she was Student Council President.

      On American television, she is renowned for her current role in the hit ABC medical series Grey’s Anatomy, for which she has won both a 2005 Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series and a 2006 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series. In July 2009, she received her fifth consecutive Emmy nomination for her work on the series.

      Oh received critical acclaim for her six seasons as Rita Wu on the HBO series Arli$$. She received an NAACP Image Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and a Cable Ace award for Best Actress in a Comedy for her work on Arli$$. In theatre, Oh has also starred in the world premieres of Jessica Hagedorn’s Dogeaters at the La Jolla Playhouse and Diana Son’s Stop Kiss at Joseph Papp’s Public Theater in New York City. She made several guest appearances on the series Popular (1999) playing a humanities teacher. She has also guest starred in the television series Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, Judging Amy, Six Feet Under, and Odd Job Jack.

      Oh was host of the 28th Genie Awards on March 3, 2008. In 2009, Oh performed in The People Speak a documentary feature film that uses dramatic and musical performances of the letters, diaries, and speeches of everyday Americans, based on historian Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. During the off season hiatus from filming Grey’s Anatomy in 2010, Sandra Oh took the part of Sarah Chen in the British crime drama Thorne. She took intensive dialect coaching in order to play her British character.

      On June 28, 2011 it was announced that Oh would receive a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame; she was inducted on October 1 at Elgin Theatre in Toronto.

    Is 30 Years A Reasonable Target To Become A Working Actor By? I’ve only really done a BTEC in performing arts and one of my A levels is Performance studies, I’ve dropped my offers to study History in university this year, instead Im applying for acting and shall study A level theatre studies in the meantime. I”ve decided that even if the pay is low and work is limited its the only career i’d enjoy, I’m taking action already to keep myself looking young so I won’t be as limited in getting roles. Am I doing the right thing?

    • Curator says:

      How many actors struggle for years, and never get their big break?

      Others go to Hollywood……luck out, land some stupid role in some stupid sitcom…..and next thing ya know……the show is a smash hit, and they are the break out star, and getting showered with Emmy nominations and having scripts for movies thrown at them left and right…………

      It’s like winning the lottery.

      I thought FIREFLY was a great show, and they’d all go on to big things.

      It got cancelled after one season, and couldn’t tell you where any of them are now.

      Incidently……..I had a friend in HS…….he was in all the school plays…the lead…….the born actor……
      and he chucked it all and moved to Hollywood and knocked around for 10 years.

      He had some limited success…….landing parts in Galaxy Quest and Men in Black, working right there, next to big name stars……….but, he was like a background character actor…..and clearly was never gonna be Leading man stuff.

      But hey………he went………he gave it his shot………and he was up there, for a bit…….pretty big part in Galaxy Quest. It was a hoot seeing him on screen.

      The ’70s have to be considered the golden age of television, so it is difficult to narrow down the 10 best TV shows of the ’70s. Some of the TV shows that don’t even make the cut include “Sanford and Son”, “The Jeffersons”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “Good Times”, “Laverne and Shirley”, “The Six Million Dollar Man”, “Starsky and Hutch”, “The Partridge Family”, “The Odd Couple”, “Kung Fu”, “Kojak”, “Scooby Doo”, “Taxi”, “Lou Grant” and “Barney Miller”. These are the 10 best television shows of the ’70s.

      television shows of the ’70s.

      “The Waltons” A lot of people might not realize that “The Waltons” is one of the most successful television adaptations. “The Waltons” was based on a book called “Spencer’s Mountain” and a film of the same name. “The Waltons” won the Best Picture Emmy in 1973 and the actors from “The Waltons” won a total of nine Emmys.
      “Little House on the Prairie” Michael Landon was a part of one of the best TV shows of the ’60s and one of the best TV shows of the ’70s. After playing “Little Joe” Cartwright on “Bonanza” from 1959 to 1973, Michael Landon needed another long-running show, so he became the star of “Little House on the Prairie”. Believe it or not, Michael Landon didn’t get any Emmy nominations for either show but should have won multiple times for each.
      “The Rockford Files” “The Rockford Files” must have been one of the best TV shows of the ’70s because NBC has honored it by remaking it into a current television show. Wait, this is NBC; perhaps this is actually a dishonor.
      “Happy Days” The word did not exist back in the ’70s, but if it did, then the relationship between “the Fonz” and Richie Cunningham could only be described as the best bromance of the ’70s. Fonzie is one of the most memorable characters in television history and Ron Howard hasn’t done too bad for himself either.
      “All in the Family” “All in the Family” was a ground-breaking television show that was one of the first to tackle subjects such as homosexuality, women’s rights, racism, rape and miscarriages. Despite the controversial issues, people tuned in. “All in the Family” ranked first in the Nielsen ratings every year from 1971 to 1976. Only “The Cosby Show” and “American Idol” have ranked first for five consecutive seasons since.
      “The Carol Burnett Show” “The Carol Burnett Show” is arguably the best sketch comedy show of all-time and is definitely one of the ten best TV shows of the ’70s. “The Carol Burnett Show” never ranked very high in the Nielsen Rankings but it was a favorite by critics who awarded the show with 25 Emmy Awards.

      “The Muppet Show” “The Muppet Show” combines three things that people like: celebrities, music and cute little furry creatures. “The Muppet Show” has spawned several movies and has certainly produced more toys, clothes and other products than any TV show of the ’70s.
      “Mary Tyler Moore Show’ Forget about Lucille Ball–Mary Tyler Moore is the greatest female actress in the history of television. After co-starring in one of the best shows of the 60’s, “The Dick Van Dyke Show”, Mary Tyler Moore just raised the bar another level with her own show.
      “The Brady Bunch” “The Brady Bunch” is so popular that everybody remembers specific episodes, quotes from the show, the theme song, all the characters and even all the relationships that were going on off screen. Unfortunately, everybody remembers cousin Oliver too.
      “M*A*S*H*” “M*A*S*H*” holds the record for the most watched television episode in history when 105.97 million viewers tuned in for the series finale. It wasn’t until the 2010 Super Bowl that a program of any kind surpassed that number. “M*A*S*H*” was set during the Korean War. The actual Korean War only lasted three years, yet “M*A*S*H*” lasted eleven seasons. Many of the stories that were told on” M*A*S*H*” were based on true stories told to the producers by real MASH surgeons. It is hard to argue against “M*A*S*H*” being the best TV show of the ’70s.
