Filmmaking is Collaboration

Making a Movie... it can't be done by just one person. It takes a whole bunch of people to make it happen. Each person brings their own talent to the project. Sometimes that means thousands of people on a super-big budget movie. But it can also mean a good dozen people on a smaller film set or documentary.

"Filmmaking is all about appreciating the talents of the people you surround yourself with and knowing you could never have made any of these films by yourself."
- Steven Spielberg

It's obvious that a film needs actors (or characters that we see on screen.) Everybody knows about directors and producers and screenwriters. But what most people don't see or often even realize is that there are a lot of other people who work behind the camera. Yes, there's the camera operator.

But there's also the camera assistants, assistant directors, props and costume people, and make-up/hair people, set decorators, lighting people, gaffers, grips, production assistants, stand-ins, doubles, sound mixers and boom operators. And that's often just the tip of the iceberg.

All these people come together to make a movie possible. Each does their own job. In many ways it's like how various parts of the body work together to make up a person. It's a collaboration. It's team work.

To all those people who help us make our movies... We couldn't do it without you!
