Film Producer – a person responsible for the financial and managerial aspects of making a film.
Film producers fill a variety of roles depending upon the type of producer. Either employed by a production company or independent, producers plan and coordinate various aspects of film production, such as selecting script, coordinating writing, directing and editing, and arranging financing.
A documentary is a nonfictional piece of film or TV programme intended to document some aspect of reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction, education, or maintaining a historical record.
Drama is a genre of film that relies on the emotional and relational development of realistic characters. Drama relies heavily on the development of dramatic themes, which play a large role in the plot. Often, these dramatic themes are taken from intense or real life issues.
Sub Genres – costume drama, political drama, courtroom drama, domestic drama, comedy-drama.
Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion and illusions change by means of the rapid display of a sequence of images that minimally differ from each other.
Animators are artists who specialize in the creation of animation.
An animation director is the director in charge of all aspects of the animation process during the production of an animated film or an animated segment for a live-action film.
Stop motion animation (also called stop frame animation) is animation that is captured one frame at time, with physical objects that are moved between frames. When you play back the sequence of images rapidly, it creates the illusion of movement.
Special FX /Visual FX
In filmmaking, visual effects (abbreviated VFX) are the processes by which imagery is created and/or manipulated outside the context of a live action shot.
Special effects (often abbreviated as SFX, SPFX, or simply FX) are illusions or visual tricks used in the film, television, theatre, video game, and simulator industries to simulate the imagined events in a story or virtual world.
A camera operator (cameraman or a camerawoman) is a professional operator of a film or video camera. In filmmaking, the person designing the lighting is the cinematographer or director of photography, who is also informally called a “cameraman” though it is a different job.
A cinematographer or director of photography (sometimes shortened to DP or DOP) is the chief over the camera and light crews working on a film, television production or other live action piece and is responsible for making artistic and technical decisions related to the image.
Video editing is the process of manipulating and rearranging video shots to create a new work. Editing is usually considered to be one part of the post production process — other post-production tasks include titling, colour correction, sound mixing, etc.
On its most fundamental level, film editing is the art, technique, and practice of assembling shots into a coherent sequence. The job of an editor is not simply to mechanically put pieces of a film together, cut off film slates, or edit dialogue scenes.
