Directing Hollywood Blockbusters with Legendary Director John Badham

Today on the show we have a true legend from the film business, director John Badham. John has directed some of the most iconic films in history. From the decade-defining Saturday Night Fever to 80’s hits like War Games, Short Circuit, & Stakeout to 90’s action classics like Bird on a Wire, Point of No Return, Nick of Time and Drop Zone. Check out his current demo reels below.

John Badham has not only continued directing but is involved with some of the most cutting-edge television show being made today. John is also the author of two books John Badham On Directing: Notes from the Set of Saturday Night Fever, War Games, and More and I’ll Be in My Trailer: The Creative Wars Between Directors and Actors.

He’s also is a Tenured Film Professor at Chapman University in Los Angeles. I can’t tell you what a thrill it was to sit down and pick John’s brain. He’s been directing for close to five decades. His wealth of knowledge and experience is remarkable.
