Camera Operators

Camera operators are responsible for capturing and recording all aspects of a scene for film or television. They use principles of lighting, staging, focusing and filtering to achieve a specific visual look for broadcast television or motion pictures. They work with a team of other film professionals to capture the ideas and vision of the project’s director.

 

Film Crew Technicians

Film crew technicians develop technical and production skills in one or more “below the line” film craft areas, including art, hair, make-up, wardrobe, craft services, grip, electric, sound, locations, and production office. 

 

Videographers

A videographer is someone who is responsible for recording live events and small scale video productions. Videographers focus on smaller productions like documentaries, live events, short films, legal depositions, weddings, birthday parties, sports events, commercials, and training videos.
