To Sculpt Beauty from Chaos: Insights on the Art of Directing with Julie Johnson
MetadataShow full item record
The art of directing was introduced to me through a Directing I class that I took during the spring quarter of my junior year. This class, taught by Professor Ed Menta, was an overview of the job of a stage director, in which I studied everything from script analysis and finding action units to blocking and creating stage pictures. I was given the opportunity to direct my first project, a thirty minute scene with five actors. In retrospect that scene was too much to tackle as a first attempt, but after that one experience I knew without doubt that I wanted to pursue directing further. My interest had been sparked. I was fascinated with the power that a director held, to mold a piece of written text into her own vision. Anne Bogart, in her book A Director Prepares says that "interest, [the] thing that cannot really be faked, is an invitation to an adventure" (Bogart 75). Because my own interest was there without question, I knew that I had begun an adventure.
