Roles and responsibilities

All filmmaking is a team effort. Regardless of how big or small the production, students will need to rely on one another to fulfil different crew and cast roles. Have students change roles on each other’s projects so everyone gets a turn at each of the roles.

On a small project like this, you will need:

  • A director
  • A camera operator
  • A sound recordist (depending on whether you are recording audio through the camera’s in-built mic or an attached microphone)
  • Actors
  • It will also help to have crew assisting with sets and props.
