Art Director

Though art direction has been an integral part of the filmmaking process for more than 100 years, the craft is not well understood—even among those working in the industry. For many years, these artists and their contributions were underappreciated, but more recently, the skill and talent of these professionals have been better recognized through negotiation for prominently displayed credit and the inclusion of the category in popular award shows.

Hairstylist

With the flick of a comb, a hairstylist can characterize, set a time period or even illuminate a theme. Successful hairstyles can evoke a sense of drama or even comedy. They can be tied to certain eras and even to certain celebrities. Because of this, it cannot be understated how important hair is to a star’s image, and subsequently, the films and television shows in which he or she appears. Just imagine the actor playing Wolverine with a Justin Beiber cut.

Costume Shop Manager

The costume shop manager is a logistical supervisor who collaborates closely with the costume designer to oversee the fabrication and fit of all garments for theatrical productions, as well as film and television shows. This person does not participate in constructing costumes, but is responsible for overseeing the shop staff and ensuring that wardrobe is delivered on budget and in a timely manner.

Frameworks Storyboards

Frameworks Storyboards is a boutique agency that offers storyboard and production illustration services for commercials, event advertising, music videos, television, and feature films. Artist representatives Chris Henschen and Jennifer Canal helm the company.

In the post-production process for film and television, the re-recording mixer is responsible for pulling together the complete soundtrack, and refining that audio for technical and aesthetic quality.

Product Placement Manager

Product placement—otherwise known as embedded marketing or brand integration—is the practice of plugging a consumer product or trademarked brand into movies, TV shows, music videos or songs, video games and the like. The makers of consumer goods often employ product placement managers, also known as brand advocates, to pursue brand integration opportunities and field requests for use by product placement executives at entertainment companies.

Mole-Richardson Co.

Italian immigrant Peter Mole and his partners, Elmer Richardson and Fielding Coates, founded Mole-Richardson in 1927 to pursue new techniques and technology in production lighting. One year later, the company introduced its first line of incandescent lighting instruments; the “Inkie” quickly became the preferred choice among cinematographers. 

Product Placement Executive

Product placement executives are the individuals employed by entertainment companies like film studios and record labels to field requests for embedded marketing—otherwise known as product placement or brand integration—in films, television shows, video games, music videos, and albums. It also falls to the product placement executive to secure clearances for trademarked goods that his or her company wishes to mention or feature in the entertainment production.
