Since theatre is delivered to its audience without an intervening layer of technology, we might call it a direct mode. Therefore theatre directors need only know about text and actors. The theatre is heavy on literature and philosophy, so as the head of a production, directors need to know more about the script than anyone else they supervise. Stage directors also need to know a great deal about actors and acting before beginning to direct. It takes a while to accumulate this knowledge, so many directors end up with both undergraduate and graduate degrees in theatre arts. They get most of their specific directorial training and experience at the graduate school level, often earning a Master of Fine Arts degree in directing.
Film and television are indirect modes, therefore its directors must know about the additional layer of cameras and editing as well. Many film directors start off by learning the basics of text, actor, and staging by attending a college theatre arts program with an emphasis in directing. Those who wish to specialize in film go on to a graduate program at a film school such as UCLA, USC, or NYU. The prestigious American Film Institute (AFI) of Los Angeles will not even accept anyone who has not completed a B.A. in the field. While in graduate school, directors learn the specifics of making movies. On the other hand, some film directors do go directly to film school as undergraduates, and learn about text, actors, and staging by trial and error while in the process of making student films.
