WRITERS, PRODUCERS, ACTORS, DIRECTORS


My name is Darin Scott, and I’ve spent over 25 years Directing, Producing, and Writing feature films, television, and music videos.


Most of my feature films have been national theatrical releases.  They’ve won prizes at Sundance, been screened in Director’s Fortnight at Cannes, won 6 IFP Spirit Awards, won the MTV Best Movie Award, been listed on dozens of Top Ten critics lists, and grossed over 100 million dollars at the Box Office.


I’m an ACTIVE WORKING DIRECTOR who’s helmed projects in every genre, from Drama and Comedy, to Science-Fiction and Horror.


Among the actors I’ve worked with are Rene Zellweger, Sam Jackson, Terry O’Quinn, Brittany Murphy, Danny Glover, Vincent Price, Clarence Williams III, Jeffrey Combs, Morris Chestnut, Shemar Moore, Bill Duke, Larenz Tate, Morris Chestnut, Meghan Ory, Shantel Van Santen, Charles Dutton, Michael Beach, Corbin Bleu, Tamala Jones and many others.


Quality of performance is everything in narrative fiction.  No amount of technical  prowess, facile camerawork, or beautiful cinematography can overcome weak  or unconvincing acting, and great performances can cure all. 


So knowing how to communicate with actors and inspire them to great performances is the most important skill a director can have, yet it’s also the most neglected subject in film schools nationwide.


I want to share with you practical real world secrets of how to work with actors to tell your story and get the fantastic performances you want.


If you’re truly serious about becoming a top-notch filmmaker and storyteller, or if you’re an actor who often ends up in the position of having to direct yourself, you need to take this class.  I look forward to seeing you there.
