Concentrations in the Film Industry

Updated: Nov 24, 2019

I will just list the departments and some of the jobs within the department. Your research afterwards can be your own creative journey. I will only lists jobs pertaining to student film with little budget and have little crew. There are more jobs in the professional world with deeper concentration. If you're interested in learning all the jobs in the film industry here is the link to New York's Film Unions. Go into the links to each union website and find the lists of positions. NYC UNIONS
