Description : @imdanielfox Podcast - 'Reloading with Werner' on iTunes and Soundcloud When it comes to directing, one set of skills that always separates the wheat from the chaff, are the fine arts of blocking and composition. They're the extra punch in selling great performances, and reeling your audience in. In this video, I look at what makes and breaks great directing, through clever staging and camera movement.
