Hollywood Directors Quiz
With the development of the camera came the possibilities for a bold new form of art. Eventually, this art form would reveal itself as the craft we call cinema. Cinema is an industry that was born in the West but which quickly spread throughout the world.
Anywhere that there was someone with a story to tell, there movies could be made. Hollywood rapidly became the central hub for global movie-making, but it was far from the only location where films were being created. Some say that the beating heart of a film is its director.
Indeed, the director is something of a leader trying to mesh all of the elements of production together into a single excellent product. Naturally, this job can be much harder than it may seem on paper. Directors are largely responsible for what we see and hear in a film. They help to guide actors and camerawork.
Because of this large amount of responsibility, movies are often called the works of directors first and foremost. A number of individuals have managed to become prominent directors throughout the years.
This quiz will ask you to identify some of the most famous directors from around the world by their works. We will be including directors from all over and from all time periods up to and including the modern day.
