Film and Television Directors
At the very least, a high school diploma, while not technically
required if you wish to become a director, will still probably be
indispensable to you in terms of the background and education it
signifies. As is true of all artists, especially those in a medium
as widely disseminated as film, you will need to have rich and
varied experience in order to create works that are intelligently
crafted and speak to people of many different backgrounds. In high
school, courses in English, art, theater, and history will give you
a good foundation. Further, a high school diploma will be necessary
if you decide to go on to film school. Be active in school and
community drama productions, whether as performer, set designer, or
