LOCAL 478 CRAFTS AND CLASSIFICATIONS

film crew is a group of people hired by a production company for the purpose of producing a film or motion picture.

The Crew is distinguished from the cast as the cast are understood to be the actors who appear in front of the camera or provide voices for characters in the film.

The crew is also separate from the producers as the producers are the ones who own a portion of either the film company or the film's intellectual property rights.

A film crew is divided into different departments, each of which specializes in a specific aspect of the production.

Film crew positions have evolved over the years, spurred by technological change, but many traditional jobs date from the early 20th century and are common across jurisdictions and film-making cultures.
