Actors as an Auteur: Tom Cruise

  1. This is something I’ve explored specifically with actors that started production companies and thus became executive producers on their acting projects. Cruise had one from ‘96-‘08 and tons of actors have done the same since Bogey with Santana studios back in the 40’s/50’s was I think the first to do it. And yeah I think there ends up being an auteur element because of the consistent pairing between on camera and behind camera talent and other consistencies that happen when working with the same company

  2. " a view of filmmaking in which the director is considered the primary creative force in a motion picture" - Auteur Theory.
