Even before a movie is made and is out in theatres, it would already be ready in the mind of a director. Long before a movie begins its production, a good film director would have already watched the entire movie in his mind. Then the vision is made into a film by gathering all the crew and cast.

Over the years, there have been directors that changed and influenced the film industry with creativity and imagination. Last and the current century witnessed a large number of filmmakers that changed the way movies are being made.
