Shielding yourself with your AD: Creating a Short Film: 05 Directing

One of the roles of the first assistant director or 1st AD is to shield the director from the onslaught of opinions and feedback from every member of the cast and crew. This can be overwhelming to a film director trying to focus on the creative decisions associated with directing a movie. First time directors must learn to use their 1st AD so they can concentrate on directing the film.
