CAREER IN CAMERA:-
Camera Operators perform a vital role within the camera department on feature films. They support the Director of Photography (DoP or DP), and the Director, by accurately carrying out their instructions regarding shot composition and development. The seamless ease with which the camera moves is key to the narrative flow of feature films, and is the Camera Operators' responsibility. They are usually the first people to use the camera's eye piece to assess how all the elements of performance, art direction, lighting, composition and camera movement come together to create the cinematic experience.
Essential knowledge and skills
Camera Operators need advanced technical abilities, combined with creative skills, and must know how to operate the camera to achieve the desired result. They need a good working knowledge of all camera systems, lenses and camera support equipment; of available accessories such as remote focus systems, video senders and receivers, and of any other regularly used equipment. Creative input and artistic ability are vital. As the decision-making process may take some time, patience is also essential.
Key Skills include:
A good sense of visual composition, perspective and movement
Physical co-ordination and strength
Ability to combine creativity with technical skills
Precise attention to detail
Effective communication skills
Ability to collaborate, and to work as part of a team
Diplomacy and sensitivity when working with artists and crew
Knowledge of the requirements of the relevant Health and Safety legislation and procedures.
Training and qualifications
No specific qualifications are required to work in this role, although film schools and training courses offer a good basic grounding in the skills and knowledge required and in practice many Camera Operators have studied for higher level qualifications. The most useful courses offer practical experience and may also include work experience placements. Relevant courses include City & Guilds courses, BTEC HNC/HNDs, Foundation degrees, first degrees and postgraduate qualifications in media, film and TV production or cinematography. Basic stills photography, which develops visual and composition skills, also provides a useful starting point in training for this role.
