The Director's Vision is a special taunt for all classes.

When the player selects it from the taunts menu, the character puts their arms out and forms a rectangle with their fingers.

For the specific animations of each class, please refer to the respective class taunts pages.

The Director's Vision is obtained by completing the Replay Achievement Star Of My Own Show.

  • The Pyro has two animations for this taunt: one somewhat feminine, another more masculine.
  • This is a common film gesture that is often stereotypically attributed to directors and photographers. By placing one's index finger against the opposing thumb on both hands, a natural square is created that mimics the widescreen aspect ratio of film. When placing this "square" over a prospective scene or event, one then can imagine or explain how the scene would look to a viewer if filmed or photographed, whilst keeping note of what may get cut off on the sides.
  • Some of the classes use a different method of the gesture in which both thumbs oppose each other and the index fingers are parallel.
