The ONLY way you will find out is to jump in and do it!. One of my friends knows all those films and too many more, but because he got burnt once, all his other good work just sits on his computer, going nowhere, because he is too scared to take a risk and make it himself!. Don't fall into that trap!. Get out there, make a film with some buddies!. It's the best way to find out if you'll fly or fall!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It takes a lot more than inspiration to be a good film director!. And honestly it takes some natural talent that you either do or do not have!. But develop your own style, don't just follow these directors!. Be an individual let other influences inspire you rather than just film directors!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Don't forget what goes on in front of the camera!. Get some experience acting and taking direction!.
Inspiration is important, but work on the skills from both sides!.
Make sure you take as many film classes as possible!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Has nothing to do with it!. You will need a natural talent for it and serious training!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
