You may not realize it but over a decade ago Helen Shaver, well recognized for her work as an actress on such varied projects as The Believers, The Color of Money and The Amityville Horror to her roles on TV, most notably in "Poltergeist: The Legacy," made the transition to working behind the camera and has spent most of her time directing everything from "The Outer Limits" and "The Firm" to, most recently, episodes of History Channel's epic, action-heavy drama "Vikings" and BBC America's "Orphan Black" for which she received a nomination for the 2015 DGC Best Director Award.

Shaver is in Vancouver this week at VIFF Industry which runs September 29 to October 3, and will be presenting "Anatomy of a Scene."

During our short conversation, we talked about her transition from acting to directing, how her acting background has helped her be a better director and how she prepares for new jobs.
