In a world dominated by mass media and increasingly diverse forms of audiovisual communication, the person with the skills and knowledge of the filmmaker occupies a position of influence and importance. But to make an effective film, a filmmaker needs to do more than master the complex technologies of film production. Being a successful filmmaker requires an understanding of how to conceptualize ideas in terms of how films communicate ideas and emotions, and how to break down such conceptions into the multitude of individual tasks that comprise a production.
