- @Ross McClure that's a nice list to add to my watchilst! I agree with you, I want to discover more projects outside the mainstream cinema. Thank you for your input :)
- @Beatrice Garcia Will definitely check him out, I've been binge watching documentaries lately. It's a peak into somebody's reality from the comfort of your safe bubble.
- Good question! I would say that there is still too much of a focus on feature film directors being the quintessential 'ideal' of a filmmaker and we should consider directors who work in online, digital and of course the TV world.I'm a fan of these people right now -MOVIESThe Safdie BrothersAri AsterRobert EggersDavid LowerySean BakerONLINE / SHORT FILMDanny SangraRally RidbergRob SavageFreddie HallDean PuckettADVERTISING / MUSIC VIDEOSZac EllaNinian DoffOscar HudsonTVKate HerronHiro MuraiBill Hader (who moved into directing with his show Barry)Check them out!
- Asif Kapadia- he has tremendous empathy and his documentaries on controversial celebrities never cease to surprise me!
- Thomas Vinterberg (Celebration, Another Round). I think film buffs probably know his work but he deserves wider acclaim if you ask me. Also, Pawel Pawlikowski (Ida, Cold War, My Summer of Love), Ashghar Farhadi (A Separation, About Elly, Everybody Knows).
- John Carpenter
