Currently all of the jobs are in alphabetic order, arranging them into categories might be a better way to go. For example: editing, guys in charge, crewmen, actors. I'm not sure where all of the jobs would fall though.

Also, the tv crew is closely related but not the same. I debated making them one template but decided against it. Here's a list of everything I gathered.

TV Show runner Script editor Television director Television producer

Film Production designer Film director Film producer Script supervisor [[Line Producer

both Actor Cinematographer Camera operator Best boy Colorist Costume design Art director Set decorator Dolly grip Focus puller Executive producer Gaffer Grip (job) Key grip Property master Location manager Production assistant Assistant director Clapper loader Production sound mixer Boom operator (media) Utility sound technician Film editing Foley artist Dialogue editor Sound design Sound editor

Accidents in filmaking??[edit]

Why is Accidents in filmaking (List of film accidents) listed in this template? That is not a "job" on a film crew.

I'm removing it. - ¢Spender1983 (talk) 15:50, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Expert input[edit]

As an individual who worked for several years as a 1st AC and as a member of IATSE Local 600 I'd say I am an expert on the subject. My personal feature film creds, not including low-budget, commercial, and other projects as IMDb only lists major films and television shows for the most part Here's some recommendations on how I'd suggest improving this template..

What is the reasoning for not including television crew? Independent crewmen can often be found working on indie films, big budget features, syndicated television, music videos, commercials, etc.. The positions are the same regardless of the medium in which the project will be displayed. And its not unheard off that some projects exist across several mediums simultaneously or during the projects lifetime. While it can be argued that a few positions may be exclusive for the specific medium, be it film or tv; so can be said for big-budget vs indie film. I think the best thing to do would be to consider it a list of oproduction positions rather than exclusively film positions because the lines are far to gray to ever accurately limit it to only film positions and then the question arrises of the size of the production

For example, the list you have created.. You've listed production designers, script supervisors, and line producers as exclusive to film but television has these positions as well.

There are many positions that seem to be listed by multiple names and Assistant director article should really be split between 1st AD and 2nd AD because the positions are very different from each other. There are also a plethora of positions that do not even have articles on Wikipedia yet; most prominently in the fields of SPX, post-production, and production department which currently does not mention positons such as safety, crafty, transpo to name a few.David Condrey log talk 08:33, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Here are some useful resources to help improve this list


As far as organizing, I'd recommend organizing the list in the same fashion in which it would be structured in the credit role on screen. I started this by separating above the line and below the line. David Condrey log talk 08:54, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
