Direction & Script Writing

Directors such as Balu Mahendra, Mani Ratnam, Balachander, Shankar and so many others also write their own scripts. It is essential for a Director to know the art of script writing too because, a Director would always find it easier to work with his/her own script rather than work with a script written by some other writer. Also, it is easier for a Director to write down what he/she visualises rather than depending on someone else to do it. Direction and script writing are two sides of the same coin. Direction and script writing are also two of the major jobs on a film set. These are like the two captains of the ship.
