Why you're not a director

Your favorite film is 20 years old and you don't watch more than one or two movies per week.

You finance and distribute your own films because nobody else will and your films don't sell or get accepted into film festivals.

You have a "better" way to approach filmmaking even though you don't understand the long established methods of filmmaking.

You don't know how to effectively communicate with a cast and crew.

You surround yourself with yes-men and people less experienced than you.

You have a very poor grasp of the visual aspects of storytelling in film.

You almost always defer to your own ego over the good of the film in almost every instance.

You've never been paid to direct anything.
