What Is It That Everyone DOES on a film?

15 08 2007

Van Winckel Studios has a description of what everyone does on a film, including their feeling about who is required and who isn’t. You can see the list at this URL.

Some of these are completely idiotic.  A screenwriter, who is thankfully, required, “writes the script.”  D’oh.  A dolly grip is “a grip that moves a dolly.”  Now, that is total genius.

But, for anyone who wanted to know what a Gaffer does, it tells you right here – “The head of the electrical department.”  Doesn’t get any clearer than that.

Now if only they’d tell me just what a Best Boy does!!
