If you’re wanting to learn how to direct, then what better place to start than from the world’s best?

The Academy Awards have really been putting out a lot of free content. Including an awesome interview of, directors Paul Thomas Anderson (Licorice Pizza), Kenneth Branagh (Belfast), Jane Campion (The Power of the Dog), Steven Spielberg (West Side Story), and Denis Villeneuve (Dune) who sat down for an in-depth conversation about their films that was curated and taped by the DGA.

Director Jeremy Kagan moderated the discussion for the 31st annual Meet the Nominees: Theatrical Feature Film Symposium. In this discussion, the directors give incredible insight into their processes, share behind-the-scenes details of production, and reveal their methods for coping with anxiety. All valuable things!
