Those things that you sometimes fear actually can wind up being the forces that push you to higher creative plane.
We all want the same thing.
A great moment, great scene, great movie.
This is what it takes, right?
I began acting as a child.
I grew up in this environment.
Almost by osmosis, I began to understand what that creative problem-solving was like.
What was it about?
And yet, I also grew up watching TV shows that I loved, cartoons that I thought were hilarious, movies that transported me.
And it wasn’t until I actually began falling in love with the idea of maybe being the decision-maker, maybe being the director, and I started making Super 8 movies that I realized, it wasn’t about the crew around you.
It wasn’t about the sets that were being built.
It was about what you captured inside the frame lines.
Because ultimately, all of this work comes back to the story.
We all have to be telling the story in every single department.
And who is the keeper of the story?
Well, ultimately, it’s the director.
I’m Ron Howard, and this is my MasterClass.
Let’s get to it.
