Film Director Diploma

I have just been awarded a Diploma as a Film Director after attending a long and extensive course at a local establishment of education. Let me share a few of the tricks of the trade which I have learnt from this college.

1 All action films must have a fight. Whether it is people punching and kicking each other in martial arts fashion, or a pub brawl, or a swords fight like the three musketeers. What is important to remember is that it does not matter if the hero is heavily outnumbered; the enemies will always wait patiently to attack the hero one by one, dancing around in a threatening manner until the hero has knocked out their predecessors.

2 The hero must never show any pain whilst taking the most ferocious beating by his enemies; but he must always wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds.

3 Whenever a large pane of glass is visible on the screen, it is imperative that someone will be thrown through it.

4 All electronic timing devices must have large red readouts to add to the suspense and drama of the scene. The hero must always be seen with cold sweat on his forehead and he must always blindly choose to cut the right wire with seconds to spare.

5 In police films, the detective can only be able to solve the case once he has been suspended from duty. And he is always assigned a partner who is the total opposite in character.

6 Even when driving down a perfectly straight road, the character must always turn the steering wheel vigorously from left to right every few moments to show that he is driving. He can also look sideways to the pretty woman in conversation for at least a mile without having an accident.

7 In war films the characters can survive any battle unless they show someone else a picture of their sweetheart back home. That's when you're sure they'll die.

8 In bedroom scenes it is important to have a special L-shaped sheet that reach the armpit level of the woman, but only the waist level of the man lying beside her. Apparently, watching male nipples is very suggestive in such scenes.

9 If staying in a haunted house, women should always investigate any strange noises in their most revealing underwear. Even if it is freezing outside and the wind is howling through the open windows.

Now that you have learnt as much as I have, I look forwards to watching your videos. Here's mine:


  1. LOL! So funny and so true!

    1. Hi Manny,

      Great to see you visiting again.

      God bless.

  2. Victor, these are hysterical. I'll add a note to your first point. Not only will they attack one by one, but even if they are trained snipers with machine guns, and even if they have killed hundreds during the movie, they will all miss the hero even if he/she is in broad daylight. Also, if a hero and bad guy are fighting on anything suspended high in the air, there is a good bet the hero will start to fall, somehow grab onto the ledge with one hand, and eventually stand the victor as the bad guy plummets to his death.

    Thank you for these laughs. God Bless you.

    1. You're right about the comments you make Michael. I must have missed that lesson at college. Still, I got the Diploma and made my first film. Next stage is winning an Oscar or two.

      God bless you.



God bless you.
