Product description


When people want to 'work in Hollywood' what do they really mean? Unfortunately, not everyone can be a director, producer or actor. The good news being that there are a myriad of little-known jobs in Hollywood. Each one of these jobs makes a unique and valuable contribution to the production of any television programme or movie. Author and freelance cameraman, Brian Dzyak (whose credits include "Evan Almighty" and "West Wing") explores over 35 of these jobs, in-depth, from boom operator to key grip. He untangles various jobs within different departments and explains how they all interact with one another. For each crew member, a "day in the life" is explored and explained. You can find out what each job title really means, how to get it, how to do it and how to move up to the next level.

About the Author

Brian Dzyak, a freelance cameraman, has worked on We Are Marshall, Evan Almighty and many other films, along with West Wing and other TV shows.
