Do we have directors managers here in the UK?
So I imagine that I'm not alone in asking this question but having conducted a reasonably thorough search on IMDB Pro I'm struggling to find someone/a company that occupy the sort of niche that seems to exist in the UK wherein someone takes an active role in steering a directors career.
I've spent the past dozen years or so making short films and recently released my debut feature Lad and am now working on a followup script. Along the way I've worked on some big studio films as a crew member and I've made a lot of contacts both in the studio and independent world but am struggling to progress from self-created work to director for hire.
My feeling is that I have the materials, the experience and the contacts but my inability to convert these things could be overcome by hiring someone to 'channel' me.
Is this a refrain that anyone else understands or has experience of? Is there anyone that you've met who you could recommend for the role?
Would love to hear your thoughts.
