The Director’s Role . . . . . . . . . . . . ILLUSIONISM: THE DIRECTOR’S
Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines the word illusionism as follows: The use of artistic techniques (such as perspective or shading) to create illusions of reality. This phrase describes very closely what a corporate director does. To make the definition fully correct, we would revise it to read as follows: The use of artistic techniques (such as performance, videography, lighting) to create illusions of reality in a media presentation.
