Directing.
From the solo artist to a cast of 5,000, I have enjoyed developing a well versed process where the finished product isn’t lacking in one area or another. I have love getting the performers where they need to be emotionally, while making sure the crew feels invested in the project’s long hours and simultaneously keeping the head of the network or executive producers balanced and comfortable about time and budgets.
