Limelight Productions, Inc.

Founded by William Beautyman in 1972, Limelight Productions supplies production equipment and installation services for the entertainment industry.

Set Wireman

Not everything you see on screen is a trick; sometimes flipping a switch to turn on a light is just that simple. Just like an electrician wires a house, film and television sets can include practical wiring. Practical set wiring refers to any electrical apparatus seen on-camera that is actually used, like a table lamp that turns on or a working blender. All power being delivered to the production facilities—for example, to the costume trailer or craft services area—also falls under the domain of practical wiring.

Set Lighting Technician

Lighting technician is a job with many different titles, but it’s one of the most vital to film production. Set lighting technicians (also known as electricians, lamp operators, or juicers) do more on set than flip a switch. Instead, they operate the hundreds of lights and run the miles of cable necessary to set the look of a scene and illuminate the action.

Director of Photography

The camera serves as the audience’s eye into worlds that are strange, dramatic, and fascinating. Through film and television the viewer suspends disbelief to accompany the cast on an adventure—to end in catastrophe or celebration. The director of photography is perhaps most responsible for guiding our eye on the journey the director has designed.

Best Boy Electric

Sometimes credited as the assistant chief lighting technician, the best boy (so called whether male or female) of the electric (lighting) department is the second in command under the gaffer. This role is not to be confused with the best boy grip, under the key grip.
