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.

Technical Art Director

Bridging the technology gap between game artists and programmers, the technical art director is primarily concerned with the development and implementation of tools to efficiently facilitate the creation of art assets with computer software, and the porting of those assets through the pipeline.

Lead Character Artist

The lead character artist works under the supervision of the creative director and art director to lead the team of character artists in the creation of art assets and maintains the established aesthetic of the characters through the production process.

Dramaturg

Merriam-Webster defines dramaturgy as the art or technique of dramatic composition and theatrical representation, but that gives little indication as to what a dramaturg actually does. In American theater the job description is often very loosely defined, but generally refers to the member of the company in charge of historical research.

Scenic Charge Artist

It is generally cost-prohibitive to use authentic materials to build theatrical sets, thus productions rely on skilled artists who replicate the real world—bricks, velvet, blue sky—on stage with a paintbrush. The scenic charge artist is essentially a scenic painter who is responsible for interpreting the set designer’s illustrations concerning the color and texture of the scenery’s surfaces.

EPK Producer

Electronic press kits, or EPKs, are commissioned by film and television production companies for use in publicity material sent to members of the media, as DVD extras, and in promotional packages. The footage included in the EPK usually consists of behind-the-scenes shots and “making of” videos, as well as interviews with the cast and crew.

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.

Licensing Manager

Depending on the structure of the employing music company, a licensing manager may specialize in synch licensing, mechanical, performing, or a combination of copyright licensing. He or she is responsible for overseeing the license administrators in the royalty department and answers to the royalty director.

Game Producer

What a producer does can be a mystery to those outside a project, in any segment of the entertainment industry. Essentially, producers are leaders and facilitators who keep their entire team on the ball. In game development, the producer of a game is responsible for ensuring that the product is delivered on time, on budget, and with as few headaches as possible.

Set Decorator

The set decorator is responsible for converting the blank canvas of the set into a space that feels authentic, lived-in, and believable. This artist deals in the details, the small touches that reveal to the audience something about the person or people who occupy the locations of films and television shows.
