The Working Director FAQ's

Here you will find out lots of important information; however, we are always updating this so if you have a question not listed here please don't hesitate to email us at theworkingdirectorpro@gmail.com.

Who is this program for?

-Filmmakers who are ready to be paid, working directors but haven't figured out how to do that quite yet. 
-Filmmakers who have directed enough to have a sample of work and confidence to run a set.
-Filmmakers who are ready to think outside the box and put in the work to be a working director.

-Filmmakers who have at least 5 hours a week plus coaching time to put into the program.

Who is it 
not for?

Although, we would love to help all directors level up, here are directors who may not get the most from this program:
-A director who has not directed enough to be ready to be hired. If you don’t have a few solid pieces we encourage you to continue to build your reel then apply to the program..

-A director who does not like to do the work it takes or be coached or is closed off to new ideas.

-A director who has already directed Network TV or a studio feature. If you are at that point you already know how to get work.

Are there
refunds?

There will be no refunds. We take on a limited group at a time and we need everyone to commit once they take a spot. However, if you are not happy with the program we encourage you share your feedback on how we can improve and better serve your needs. If you have an emergency come up, we will gladly pause your time in the program (up to 3 months) to start when you are ready.

Do you guarantee I’ll get work?

Unfortunately, in our business, we can’t guarantee work; however, we do guarantee if you do the work we give you at a 100% effort, with an open mind, it will be very hard for you not to get directing work.

What's the application process like?

The application is rather short. We just want to see where you are and what you are looking for out of a program to make sure we are a good fit for one another. After your app is reviewed, if you are a fit, we will set up a strategy call with you to dive deeper. If at the end of that call we both still feel we want to work together you will be invited to join us.  See the application and apply here.

What if I'm ahead of the course?

This is where the group coaching will really help you. We go from where you are and we build your weekly action steps with you. However, we still encourage everyone to go through all the steps to confirm your director ‘package’ is as solid as possible.

Do you give feedback on scripts, application essays, and the like?

We do not read and give feedback; however, on the weekly coaching call we can answer any questions to help you get unstuck and/or help you make the decisions you need to make. You will get help on what type of work you should be creating. You will also learn what your essays should be including to stand out.

What if I have questions now or along the way?

We are usually pretty fast to answer emails so just send over any concerns that need attention before the group call and we'll do what we can to assist. You can reach us at theworkingdirectorpro@gmail.com.
