A number of people work on a single film. The group of people working on a movie is known as the crew. The crew is made up of several people with specific jobs. Each job is done in order to make the film turn out as well as possible. For example, the director’s job is to lead the production, or making, of a film. Other jobs include working the camera, setting up the lights, and recording the sound.
The crew is a team so they need to work together. They need to help each other, just like a sports team. Some crews can be as small as three people. Bigger films can have crews that have hundreds of people.
The crew is led by the director. Having one person lead the crew is helpful. It makes sure everyone has a shared goal and a clear idea of what they need to do.
