Are you for auteur or against it?
agreed. Especially in film as it is to much of a collaborative art than a sole creator
Learned about it in a class, thought it was quite interesting
The best films I’ve seen (at least on the indie and student level) have a strong director with a strong vision, but are also wonderfully supported by the other creatives on set and in the editing room as well. If it’s not a group effort with everyone feeling like their voice is heard, some aspect of the film will undoubtedly suffer.
