Theatrical Photographer

The theatrical photographer serves many functions as a member of a live production crew; he or she is both an adjunct to the marketing of the show and a historian that captures moments in cultural history for posterity.

Plate Supervisor

A plate, in production terms, is footage shot to be used for visual effects in post-production. An example of a plate may be a sequence of actors fleeing from a mega-monster that will be integrated into the scene during post-production, or simply background footage of landscape that will have all foreground action added later by a match mover.

Camera Operator

The camera operator works under the supervision of the director of photography (cinematographer) and is tasked with ensuring that the camera gets each shot just as the DP and director have instructed. Depending on the size and budget of a production, there may be several camera operators working in tandem.
