Work Director

At Captiv8, our philosophy is to be flexible, result driven, forward thinking and collaborative. Our team of creative and digital specialists, work directors, editors, designers and producers aim to convey this philosophy in all the work we undertake. When creativity and technology combine, the results never cease to amaze. This is why we will always encourage you to express your creativity.

Our experienced, creative and strategic team come fully equipped with industry leading technology and equipment to achieve great results every time. These tools mean we can harness and utilize creative production and development in every stage of our project from conception to implementation.

A film that’s intended to promote a business, a product or a particular event, or to have any other purpose, may start as a simple idea in your head. The job of a work director is to take that concept and translate it into something that will work and achieve the desired effect. They’ll put flesh on the bones of an idea so you can see what will be produced and will have a good impression of the finished product. Even if you have no real idea of what you want, we can work with you to formulate a concept and then take that forward to achieve reality. Read More

The film will inevitably have a purpose, whatever it is, and that purpose needs to be realised for the film to be effective. Making a great film that achieves nothing is, in fact, a waste of time, money and effort.

Even the shortest of promotional films can take a considerable time to make, so the effort needs to achieve positive results for that effort to be worthwhile. Time also, of course, means money and so the work director has to demonstrate that an effective film can be created within the budget and timescale set aside for it. If not, the project may not be viable and an alternative course may be sought.

Achieving a Successful Outcome

A work director in Sydney or any other of our offices will take all the various points into consideration to determine if the project is feasible for your stated budget. If not, we’ll tell you because it’s not in our interest or yours to go ahead with something that will satisfy no-one.

If we decide the project is viable within the financial and time constraints, we’ll then do our utmost to make it an unqualified success. That initially involves the work director taking the concept and turning it into a sound basis for a film that will achieve exactly what you want.

This requires the director to be:

  • able to visualise the finished film and see how it will work
  • completely practical in all aspects and focus specifically on achieving the required end goal
  • imaginative and willing to incorporate innovative features to enhance the film
  • capable of adapting strategies to overcome budgetary limitations and complete the film within the set timescale
  • focused on the common goal of fulfilling the client’s needs
  • sufficiently motivated to put everything in place to make the film a success.

Work Director With A Passion for Making Each Film Work

All our work directors have the same passion for converting initial ideas and concepts into something that our film producers and directors can then work with to create the finished film. To illustrate how it will work, they’ll create storyboards, film plots and script outlines, and will generally work to set the framework for the shape of the planned film.

Our work directors have a clear understanding of the process for taking an initial concept and turning it into a completed and successful film. They are able to visualise how things will turn out, work out the most practical and effective options, and generally enable a film that will deliver exactly the outcome you wish for.
