Supervising Editor

Hired toward the latter part of principal photography in most cases, the supervising editor is the first point of contact between the director, producers, and the larger editing staff. He or she may give input as to the hiring of the editor and subordinate crew, and will be held accountable for the completion of the final cut.

Warner Bros. Pictures

Albert, Sam, Harry, and Jack were the brothers Warner. Four years after incorporating their film company, they released the world’s first synchronized-sound feature (talkie), The Jazz Singer, in 1927. Today the motion picture arm of Warner Bros. is one of the largest and most recognizable brands in the entertainment industry, with a catalog of more than 6,650 films.

Picture Car Coordinator

What would Knight Rider be without the wit and wisdom of KITT; how would Bo and Luke get out of all those predicaments on The Dukes of Hazzard without the good old General Lee? Those automotive stars aside, any time you see a car in a film or TV show, a specialized technician known as a picture car coordinator is on set as well.

Animator

Computer animation has cemented its place in film and television, leaving behind traditional hand-drawn animation. Yet, despite the evolution from painted cels to software, the techniques and principles of animation remain largely unchanged. Animators work like actors or puppeteers to manipulate the models created in the digital environment, to create movement, interaction, and expressions of emotion through the characters.

Film Sales Agent

Independent filmmakers can spend years coming up with the perfect idea, scraping together the funding to shoot, and finally completing that masterpiece—but the film may be relegated to the shelf if it cannot be sold to exhibitors. Film sales agents represent filmmakers in need of a distribution agreement.

The Criterion Collection

The Criterion Collection takes film very seriously. The commitment to painstaking restoration to the true intent of the director and cinematographer has made this company’s products among the most cherished reissues of classic films for home audiences.

Production Designer

The production designer collaborates with the director and the cinematographer to establish the look of a film or television production. Every story is intended to leave the audience with a particular emotion, and the design of the set and scenery is just as vital in that mission as an actor’s portrayal of a character and the music that plays under the images on screen. 

Set Buyer

Treasure hunters and shopping mavens searching for their ideal career in entertainment should consider the job of set buyer. As the title states, the set buyer is a professional shopper tasked with searching antique shops and rental houses and scouring yard sales and online auction sites for the props and set dressings that transform a bare set into a convincing environment. 

Director of Photography

The camera serves as the audience’s eye into worlds that are strange, dramatic, and fascinating. Through film and television the viewer suspends disbelief to accompany the cast on an adventure—to end in catastrophe or celebration. The director of photography is perhaps most responsible for guiding our eye on the journey the director has designed.
