Between the Lines: Directing's dynamic duo

The combination of Ringan Ledwidge and Danny Kleinman is an attractive one (page 3). Both are market-leading commercial directors able to attract the best, most lucrative, scripts.

The alliance of two strong directors also makes good business sense.

They should be able to make an equal contribution to the bottom line of their production company. This will avoid the often uncomfortable scenario where one, more talented, director props up the income of other, less in-demand, colleagues.
