Film crew What does the crew do? The crew for a very small indie production might be as small as two people. The first person is the filmmaker (producer, director, cinematographer, etc.) and the other is the assistant (sound, script, continuity, gaffer, grip, etc.). If you are using anything other than available light then at least one gaffer to hold reflectors during filming is probably necessary. Selecting a filmmaking crew On your first attempts at making a short you will be calling on friends and other wannabe filmmakers. If you've been networking you should have found a few people by now. A good source in most cities is to go to craigslist.com and place an ad for "crew" in the "gigs" section. Don't get more people than you need while realizing that some of the people who absolutely, positively promise they will be there just don't show up at the last minute. The promise of good food on the set and beer and pizza after filming will do more than anything else to improve attendance. Shortly before you actually start filming have a training session where everyone gets to try the equipment and go through the process of filming scenes. Try to get some of the actors to show up for the training session. You want to foster a feeling of friendliness and teamwork as early as possible.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
