you will need a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film, and to get that you will Bachelor’s degree programs in film include classes in film history, film development, screenwriting, acting and production. Many film studies programs offer directing concentrations, which help students develop skills such as casting, rehearsal procedures, text analysis, acting technique for film and camera application. Students also learn how to create and use storyboards, shooting scripts and brackets. Students are typically required to participate in a predetermined number of student films as part of their coursework. Most film schools strongly encourage internships within the film industry in order to develop technical skills, understand the ins-and-outs of film production and develop professional contacts.
or you can go further and get a Master of Fine Arts in Film, and you will need to have Master of Fine Arts in Film degree programs help filmmakers develop their own voices as directors. MFA in film programs emphasize theme development, advanced cinematography, film theory and history and film editing. Directing programs often focus on management skills because directors are responsible for overseeing large amounts of people across many different areas of film production. Most master’s degree programs require the development of a thesis, typically in the form of a short film, as well as the development of a professional portfolio.
but mostly you need ambition, motivation, imagination and creative arts might help. good luck and you just really need to see the vision to succeed.
