Investigative Proposal

October 18th, 2011 by Jeen Kim · No Comments · 3 Investigative Proposal

Time changes virtually everything, and film is no exception. The director, as an idea, too has changed drastically. There are many differences between the contemporary director and the director from film’s “baby” years. So, what has changed about the director, with respect to film history, and why did these changes happen?

Such topics are important to offer insight on the changes in film history and the film industry as well. The well known role we know as the director wasn’t always what it was. Since film’s inception the director has changed, regarding responsibilities, qualifications, training, etc. Also, the organization of the film making process and each individual contribution in the industry has changed as well.

A historian might offer background information as to what was happening during film’s evolution. For example, advancements in technology would be a simple answer. In fact, the subject of history would be perfect to accompany this research. It may shed light on information during the time period (locally and globally) that might have affected the director.

Various interviews on directors old and new will be helpful to this research. Also, books on the history of film exist that can also help. Sources such as databases and the library will also be beneficial.
