Box Office Manager

One of the most important positions within the business component of all live show production and events is the role of the box office manager, also called the treasurer. This person is tasked with not just overseeing the sale of all tickets, but also with accounting for transactions and ensuring the security of money exchanged between the patron and the venue.  

Artistic Director

The artistic director of a performing arts organization, such as a regional theater or opera, is the chief creative officer responsible for the artistic vision of the company. This person assumes creative control over choices regarding show selection and staging, and those concerning the employment of artistic and production staff.  He or she may also serve as a spokesperson for the organization and is therefore a public figure whose goal is to attract audiences through positive interaction with the media and surrounding community. 

Publicity Director

Publicity, in terms of the larger marketing strategy, encompasses all free advertising gained through the mention of the product or brand through written reviews, news stories, or other radio, television, web, or print media. The director of publicity is responsible for the development of the overall publicity strategy concerning the client and is accountable for managing a staff of publicists assigned to manage the accounts of individual clients.  

Key Scenic Artist

In film and television production, it is often cumbersome and costly to use authentic materials in set construction. Instead, wood paneling, marble countertops, or titanium alloy bulkheads are replicated and approximated with cheaper stand-ins. With help from the carpenters, scenic artists complete this illusion with the application of faux finishes and expert painting techniques. As highly specialized artists, these members of the paint department focus on disguising one material for another and tricking the camera’s lens.  

Art Department Coordinator

The art department coordinator acts as the administrator of the crew; he or she is under the supervision of the art director. The coordinator assists this person in the business matters of the department, as well as the smooth operation of pre-production, principal photography, and wrap-up.

Ticket Sales Manager

Overseeing the operations of the box office manager and all staff concerned with ticketing is the ticket sales manager. This person is responsible to the venue owner and operator and may work for a theatrical organization, concert hall, sporting arena, or small live event space.  

Flash Developer

The mass population of Internet surfers is utterly addicted to Flash games hosted on social networking sites like Facebook, or through online gaming services like Pogo. The demand for skilled Flash developers is high, and this is a unique field that allows amateurs to compete viably for attention against big-budget studios.  

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.

Event Coordinator

The event coordinator works under the direction of the event manager and is employed by event production companies that plan and staff functions like trade shows, conventions, award shows, and corporate parties. This role is similar to that of a stage manager or assistant stage manager, in that the coordinator is tasked with supervising both the technical preparation of the event as well as the crew assigned to execute operations.

QA Design Analyst

In case it has not been made perfectly clear at this point, let it be reiterated once more: Game testing is more than just playing games. Quality assurance can refer to the process of identifying and fixing bugs but also to refining the player experience to produce a game that is as enjoyable as it is functional. The QA design analyst is a key figure in this process and is a subject matter expert on turning qualitative information into quantitative data.
