Question by Reagan Theresa: What’s more exciting: Being the Filmmaker or the Actor?
Answer by baxterville
Being the filmmaker, definitely. Actors have to take direction and are often told exactly how to act for a particular scene, so they’re not allowed that much creative freedom. They’re told to do the same scene dozens of times until they’re able to satisfy the director’s creative vision. But filmmakers are in total control of their projects (hopefully), so they have the responsibility of making sure their artistic vision is conveyed by everyone else involved in a movie. If the scene in front of a director doesn’t match the idea he has in his head, he can completely change it until he’s thrilled with the result. To me, that would be much more satisfying than repeating lines written by someone else until I’m able to match a director’s imagined version of events.
