With physical distancing restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic still in place, the DGA Special Projects Committee has found new ways to provide craft-focused programming for our members. On December 8, members from all over were able to log in online to view the Committee’s virtual event, The Craft of the Director: David Fincher.

In an in-depth conversation moderated by DGA Special Projects Committee Chair Jeremy Kagan, Fincher discussed topics including his use of multiple takes to get a scene right, how having his shots all mapped out can be a constraint to the creative process, directing suspense and his preference for a directorial team that can think on its feet.
