What does a director do?

"A film director works collaboratively with heads of the other departments – cinematographers, editors, production designers, screenwriters and producers – to create the film that represents their vision. During the production of the film, the crew looks to the director to make key creative decisions, which can include anything from camera angles to what prop to use in a scene. Additionally, film directors work with the actors to achieve performances that are consistent with the director’s storytelling goals" (American Film Institute).
