One of the most crucial aspects of video production is having a reliable and efficient crew. A well-functioning crew ensures that everything runs smoothly and that deadlines are met. Offing Media understands this and offers a variety of crew members to meet the specific needs of each project.
Here are some of the key roles that can be provided by Offing Media’s video production crew:
Corporate Video Director
The director is the person in charge of the overall vision of the video. They are responsible for making decisions about where the story goes and what it says, even if the individual tasks are carried out by other crew members. Think of the director as the captain of the ship, guiding the video production from start to finish.
In many ways, the role of the video director is similar to that of a symphony conductor. A famous quote by Aaron Sorkin sums this up perfectly: “the orchestra plays the instruments, but the conductor plays the orchestra.” Just as a conductor is responsible for making sure the individual musicians in an orchestra play in harmony, the video director is responsible for making sure all the elements of the video come together cohesively.
Director of Photography
The videographer, also known as the Director of Photography, is responsible for the look of the video. This includes important tasks such as camera placement, lens choice, lighting, and much more. Depending on the size of the video crew, the videographer may also be responsible for operating the camera.
The videographer plays a crucial role in ensuring that the video is visually appealing and impactful. They work closely with the director to make sure the images captured on camera support and enhance the overall vision for the video.
While the videographer is responsible for capturing the images of the video, the sound person is responsible for capturing the audio. Audio is often overlooked, but it is just as important as the visual elements. A sound person will have a variety of tools at their disposal, including headphones, microphones, and boom poles, to get the microphone as close as possible to the subject and capture the best sound possible.
Good audio can make or break a video, so it’s essential to have an experienced sound person on your crew. They play a crucial role in making sure that the audio is clear, crisp, and of the highest quality.
Once you have captured the beautiful images and high-quality audio, the next step is to bring everything together to form the finished video. This is where the editor comes in. The editor takes all the raw materials captured during filming and puts them together to create the final product.
First Assistant Director
On larger productions, directors often have an assistant who can take on some organizational responsibilities. The first assistant director (1st AD) is the key player in ensuring that every necessary shot is captured and that the schedule is kept.
When filming on location, it’s important to have someone who can find the right spots and secure permission to work there. The location manager is also the point of contact between the crew and local authorities, so strong relationship-building skills are essential.
The number of camera operators needed for a project depends on its scope and scale. In today’s production environment, there are many different types of cameras to choose from, including steadicams for capturing dynamic shots on the move.
On larger crews, a lighting director is responsible for coordinating with the cinematographer to ensure that all lighting is arranged correctly. The lighting director also oversees teams of grips, gaffers, and production assistants.
Gaffer and Key Grip
The lighting team includes the key grip, who sets up the lights, and the gaffer, who acts as the lead electrician and sets the lighting strategy.
Hair, Makeup, and Wardrobe
When on-screen talent is used, it’s important to have someone who can make everyone look their best on camera. On smaller shoots, talent may do their own hair, makeup, and wardrobe, but on larger shoots, professional help may be required.
Visual effects are not just the flashy lasers and explosions seen in Hollywood movies. Effect coordinators can create practical effects on set, make changes during post-production, or take on other editing tasks.
Digital Imaging Technician
The digital imaging technician (DIT) is responsible for storing the data captured on a film set. On smaller shoots, the director or cinematographer may handle this role, but on larger shoots, a dedicated DIT is essential.
Production assistants are the unsung heroes of video production, taking on any task that needs to be done. Although this may seem like a small role, it is highly valuable and a great way for new professionals to get started in the video industry.
