Often viewers say that they have just seen a film but it seemed as if they were watching two or three different movies. That may be because of the different voices and opinions that have been weaved into the production. Could you imagine a painting or novel completed by multiple artists and businessmen? When the voice of a film is interrupted or changed, the vision, perspective and art of the film suffers. This is not the case with the independent feature film writer-director.
There are many facets in the complex process and collaboration of film-making that films often do not fall under one vision. The independent feature film writer-director has control over both story and bringing it to life. Current examples of independent feature film writer-directors are Woody Allen, John Sayles and Kevin Smith. A strong director-writer may be the closest a film has to a true author.
