Directors rarely get added to IMDb lists or get as much recognition as they deserve. I felt this would be a nice start to showcase some of the more very active directors in Texas who without the following, there would be no Texas film. We all really appreciate you for keeping Texas film alive! As of 10/18/12, there are 187 people in Texas listed as a 'Director' according to IMDbPro. This is a comprehensive list of those very active directors with at least 7 IMDb director credits. (Listed alphabetically by last name) This list may be very helpful to those who don't have access to IMDb Pro that want to stay updated on some of the latest projects being shot in Texas. *If you see a name not listed, please post a reply comment and I'll add them. requirements: 1. Texas Director 2. At least 7 director credits listed on IMDb.
