And, most importantly, a set of eyes and a brain!

All that stuff above, plus a great Gaffer, great Electricians, a great Key Grip, great Grips, great Operators, great Focus Pullers, great 2nd ACs, and a great Loader.

As a DP, your most important tools are the PEOPLE who you're "directing." You need to know what to do and a great crew is the key to accomplishing it. Skimp on a less experienced "cheaper" crew and your work will suffer. As they say, you're only as good as your weakest link.
