20 Directors to Watch – A Look at the Top Helmers Reinventing the Hollywood Game

0

by:

Today, the NY Times posted a new feature spotlighting the 20 Directors to Watch. I sat down and had a chance to read through each visionary’s bio, and watch snippets of their work, and felt this complete and sudden urge to create.  To say the list is inspiring is the understatement of 2013. Not only are the directors themselves interesting, creative, and, I’ll say it again, inspiring, but their work directly portrays all of these characteristics, while simultaneously offering unique & individual looks into the stories they tell, the worlds they come from, and the experiences they’ve lived via snippets of celluloid, or in their journeys to get behind the camera.

I’ll list the top 20 directors here, however I strongly urge you to click on the NY Times link above (and below) to read up on each of these amazing directors yourself.  The Times has also put together a beautiful layout for each directors bio & videos.
