Second Unit Directors Stepping Stone To Directing

Second unit directors supervise many dialog-free scenes with stunts and special effects in action movies.
In fact, the job of a stunt coordinator is often combined with that of a 2nd unit director.
These second unit directors will oversee a team that shoots footage including establishing shots, close-ups, inserts and cutaways.
Second unit directors allow the film's director and principal talent to work more effectively within budgets.
