Jobs roles in media

  1. 1. Jobs roles in the media, definitions and descriptions Tom Ross Director: ‘a person who supervises the actors and other staff in a film, play, or similar production.’ I understand that a director is the person in charge and the person that is creating the film, play. He makes the rest of the crew do what he wants as it is his overall idea. Camera Person: ‘Camera Operators usually begin work at the end of pre-production and, if the budget allows, attend the technical recces with other Heads of Department. They work closely with the Director of Photography (DoP), Director and Grip, and are responsible for the 1st Assistant Camera (AC), 2nd Assistant Camera (AC) and the Camera Trainee.’ I understand that the camera person is very important because they are there form the production stages. They have to know all the different camera angles because if you ask them to do a specific one then they can do it In an instant.
  2. 2. Jobs roles in the media, definitions and descriptions Tom Ross Lighting Technician: ‘Lighting Technicians help to provide the relevant lighting and power supply for a film, either on a studio set, or on location. Once they are fully qualified (having served as an apprentice or trainee for three years) they start to work "on the road" as part of the lighting team. They usually require a minimum of two years' working experience, and must have reached the age of 23 before they start to work on feature films or commercials.’ I understand that the lighting technician is the person who has to provide the correct lighting at the correct time. This helping the camera person and the actual director. Sound technician: ‘Sound technicians are required to assemble, operate and maintain the technical equipment used to record, amplify, enhance, mix or reproduce sound. They identify the sound requirements for a given task or situation and perform the appropriate actions to produce this sound. Sound technicians of different types are required in a range of industries including film, broadcasting (radio or television), live performance (theatre, music, dance), advertising and audio recordings.’ eo_job_description.htm I understand that the sound technician(Boom Operator) is the person who is in charge of operating the boom and being in control of what sound effects are used, also what quality the sound is, whether it is good, bad or how loud it is quiet or loud.
