Movie Careers – Film Producer, Script Supervisors, Editors, Set Designers

Movie Careers – Film Producer, Script Supervisors, Editors, Set Designers

Script Supervisor
These individuals are required to maintain consistency in the script. If what was shot is different to what is listed in the script it will be noted so that all subsequent scenes will reflect those changes.

Producer
The Producer of a film is also one of the single most important positions in the movie business.
They will manage and supervise all aspects of creating the film including obtaining financing, working with distribution, and employing the cast and crew. They also make final decisions as to the artistic vision of the film.

Film Editor
Film Editors function similar to Sound Editors except they are using the images shot during filming. Their role is quite important as they have the ability to change the vision of a picture very dramatically. A great Film Editor will piece together all the visual elements in order to “tell the story” with the images. Without a proper Film Editor, a movie can seem confusing and difficult to follow.

Production Manager

Career at Movie Jobs

Career at Movie Jobs-Directing and More

Director
The director of a film is one of the most important members in a movie. They focus on creating the artistic vision for a film and then utilizing the entire film crew to fulfill that vision. Although a director has a lot of creative control, their vision must be in accordance with the movie’s Producer.

Foley Artist
Possibly the most unique job within the film industry. The term Foley actually refers to movement sounds within a film that are human or animal influenced; such as grabbing a doorknob, pouring liquid into a glass, and footsteps. During the original movie shoot, even though there are Production Mixers on set capturing the actual audio, many of these sounds are so subtle that they get lost or are not dramatic enough. A Foley Artist actually is in charge of re-creating these sounds in a live performance setting. While watching the film, they will record on a Foley stage, creating live sound effects with multiple props.

First Assistant Director
The First AD position is similar to the Assistant Engineer in the Music Industry. The First AD assists the Director in fulfilling their role usually by taking care of many administrative duties to include the production schedule, scene schedule, rehearsing and directing cast extras, and call sheets.

Second Assistant Director
This director’s responsibilities continue down in importance from the First AD. Some of their duties typically are monitoring the cast through make-up and wardrobe and managing additional assistant directors that have been hired for the film.

Production Assistant
This position is similar to the Intern in the Music Industry.
When entering the film business it is quite common to start out as a Production Assistant (PA). A typical film set will be broken down into Set PAs and Administrative PAs. The Set PAs work with whichever film unit they are assigned and perform general duties that the 2nd Assistant Director instructs them to do. Office PA’s do much of the mundane administrative tasks such as answer phones, get lunch for the cast and crew, pick up odds and ends, and other ‘runner’ duties. Every film will utilize several PAs depending on the size of the production.

The basic things I should know about the Film & audio-visual Communication course?

Best answer:

There are many different areas within the film and A/V industries ranging from the technical to the artistic. If you have a strong visual eye and like bringing stories to life then your might like to go into cinematography. If you enjoy the technical, then you could focus on sound or editing. I would recommend going to http://www.jobmonkey.com/filmmusic/movie_industry_jobs.html to see a description of carriers in the film industry. Also check out the curriculm of different film schools.
Such as LA Film School, Full Sail University, Univ of Southern California, NYU etc. This should give you enough information to see what you would like to do.

Demand for quality photographers on the rise

On the job:The advent of digital cameras has not only made things easy for photographers but also helped many students to exhibit their skills.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. A picture can give you information, make you laugh and also make you think. Thanks to increasing media publications, including newspapers, journals, magazines etc and not to mention the evolution of web journalism, of late there is a demand for quality photographers.

It is not just about the prospects in media; photography today provides different career options for people, particularly students.

With specialisations such as wildlife photography, fashion and portrait photography, there is scope for people to make it big in this field, provided they have creativity and the ability to capture different moments through their lens.

The advent of digital cameras has not only made things easy for photographers but also helped many students to exhibit their skills.

Perhaps this is what is driving many students to opt for part-time jobs, if not enrol into professional photography courses offered by many universities and institutions.

Definitely, many students are opting for photography as a career.

There are 45 students in Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and 25 students in Master of Fine Arts (MFA) and every year the number of students enrolling into these courses is increasing, says Kamal Roy, an Assistant Photographer in the Department of Photography, JNTU.

While, working as a photo journalist can be more demanding, being a professional wildlife photographer or a fashion photographer can be more challenging. But the underlining factor is that photography offers many specialisation options and it depends on individual’s choice and ability.

Venky, owner of private photo studio in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad says, “it has been 10 years I have started my career as a photographer. In my early days, I used to go to Mumbai and Bangalore for fashion shoots but ever since the exposure of photography increased in Hyderabad I started doing couple of fashion shoots a week”

More importantly, there is no gender discrimination in photography. Today, more women are working as professional photographers and even students are joining photography courses.

Divya Medikonda, a mass communication student in Loyola Academy says, “I started clicking pictures as a hobby and post them into a social networking website. I got good response from my friends and now I have joined a professional course.” Photography offers freedom to work at will.

Unlike, software employees and other professionals, photographers always have to look out for opportunities and capture images that can help them to make a mark in the field, irrespective of photo journalism or fashion photography.

These days colleges and organisations are conducting photography competitions in an effort to bring out the latent talent in students and encourage them to take up a career in photography as well.

Interest

Venkatesh Soma, a B.Com student who works part timer at a private photo studio feels if passion is turned into profession, then students enjoy their work and the course they pursue would become easy.

“This apart, I have advertising as one of my subjects, I started learning photography, gradually my interest towards it increased and now I am planning to take it as my profession” says Soma.

launchpad for a career in visual effects

Movies are made from life and life reflects the movies itself.

Among all our lives, movies have become a part of it. We grow, we cry, we laugh, we relate to it.

Like other Indians, I grew up watching many good and dire movies in various languages. Among all these, Hollywood movies and their style of work and making enthralled my heart and brain.

Every passion needs a spark; I strongly believe these movies got the spark in me to work in movie industry.

Science declares that the right side of the brain is used for creativity and left for logical reasoning.

In the field of visual effects and movies, I believe both sides of brain should be used equally.

Visual effects is a field where one has to use his creativity with logics and math skills. I recognised my creative skills when I was a teenager which I couldn’t equip it well because of our education system.

As of a sheep in a flock, I did my under-graduation in Computer Science and Engineering.

Graduating from college and from my adolescent age, my next big step was into the decision making arena of, what’s next?

My passion for movies and par knowledge in logics, I made my decision to enter into a good visual effects school.

The hunt began and I applied to study in United States of America to get the best of what I want.

At present I am doing my Masters degree in visual effects at Academy of Art University (AAU), San Francisco, California.

The AAU is one of the biggest art schools in America. Unlike other universities, AAU is spread all over San Francisco. They have many edifices dropped around San Francisco.

AAU offers many courses more than visual effects like in animation, fashion, fine art, motion pictures, advertising and much more.

Situated in the downtown area of San Francisco, students can get and live the life of a busy downtowner.

San Francisco is considered to be one of the beautiful and major cities of USA and is. Weather here is fairly good compared to other places in United States, experiencing warm summers and cold winters convoying with rains.

Gaining wisdom from dad and unadulterated love from mom, here I am pursuing one of my dreams.

Interested students can contact me for details on admissions and other academic issues.
