Looking for a list of duties

Discussion in 'Professional Video Production' started by Henry Padilla, Apr 1, 2005.

  1. I'm looking for a list of duties. What does the AD do? What is the Script
    Super for? Does the Sound Engineer overrule the Foley editor?

    Is this listed in a book somewhere?

    Thanks for any help.

    AD, Assistant Director. Yells 'QUIET' a lot. And is generally the most
    uptight, angriest personon the set.
    Script Super, Keeps shot notes, checks continuity and logs takes in the
    shooting script. , Does NOT get coffee.
    Sound Engineer is not really a valid Credit. Please explain which area of
    sound you are asking about , Post or location recording.

    In my experience the mixer who mixes dialog in post is the lead. Everyone
    else is subject to their decisions. But there are no set rules..

  7. What was your job on these features?

    I worked on TV features back in the 70's, as a truck driver and lighting
    rigger, not sure what that would qualify me to say about making movies
    though. More recently I'm producing the DVD extras on two 35mm features.
    Just about to start one shooting on our brand new Z1. After reading and
    hearing so much presumption and opinion based on ten minutes experience
    at a trade show somewhere, I'll just have to find our what this format
    is really like for myself.

    It had to do with Visual Effects. Lots of time on set. I hope you will not
    mind if I am not more specific. I do not want to be standing naked on
    usenet. There are so many assholes about.

    Sure it does. making movies is not a mystery and as I have said many
    times.The lower the budget the harder the job.

    More recently I'm producing the DVD extras on two 35mm features.
    I recently added a 32" HDTV LCD to one of my edit rooms.. Now I am anxious
    to move the entire suite to some form of HD. As soon as it settles down a
