Meeting television director Bethany Rooney

September 15, 2013

I had the pleasure of writing a guest blog post for Vancouver Film School about TV director Bethany Rooney, who had a candid conversation with VFS students last week.

Bethany Rooney has 25 years of directing television under her work belt and took time out of her own schedule to come speak to students at VFS. For about an hour she patiently and thoughtfully answered questions on everything from shot selection and how she likes actors to behave, to collaborating with writers.

She is in Vancouver for the next week shooting an episode of Arrow. Already this season she has directed episodes for three other shows, including Drop Dead Diva and Criminal Minds and she’s got four more coming up.

You can learn more about Bethany and what I thought about her presentation, because I know you are dying to know my inner thoughts, by going to the VFS blog.
