A Director's Gotta Do
A Director's Gotta Do 
Examining various aspects of filmmaking is crucial for understanding the process of film production. Production and story elements, aesthetic and stylistic concerns, organizational and technical facets of film production can all serve as a springboard to the discussion of film language and the way it relates to the social and cultural experiences and expectations of the audience.

In recent years, cinema scholarship has increasingly focused on explaining films through other films, providing material for research, discussion and practical application of knowledge and skills that could assist aspiring filmmakers. Special features of DVD editions often provide bio-filmographies, interviews with directors, directors of photography, editors, composers and principal cast, as well as previously unseen material that did not make it into the final cut.

Cinema audiences are becoming increasingly aware of the complexities of film production, from initial stages, to budgeting and pre-production, to the filming and post-production phase.

A Director's Gotta Do is a documentary film about the making of an Australian feature, A Man's Gotta Do (Chris Kennedy, 2004). It is conceived as excerpts from the director's journal over the most significant phase in film production - completion of principal photography.

The film is suitable for middle and senior secondary students of Media. It will have particular relevance for the understanding of directorial approaches, organization, and processes involved in film production.
