An audio engineer is a trained professional who works with the mechanics of recording, mixing, and reproducing sound. Audio engineering is also known as sound engineering. In Germany, an audio engineer is called a Tontechniker, and in Italy is called a Toningenieur. Audio engineers are not the same as sound producers, writers, or performers. Audio engineers deal specifically with the technical and the mechanical aspects of music and sound, nothing else.
A filmmaker, or film director, is someone who is in charge of making, leading, and developing movie productions. Their job falls under the arts and entertainment field. It is a career that allows an individual to use their leadership as well as creative thinking skills to lead and direct major motion pictures or made-for-television films. A film director spends very long hours making sure the film is being shot in a way that will provide entertainment for the audience and highlight the actors and actresses' strengths. The filmmaker will see each film through, from where the film is shot, to how the script will be played out, to what actors and actresses best fit the roles of the characters. He/she also manages the financial end of the production.
Announcers present music, news, and/or sports and may provide commentary or interview guests about these topics. Some act as a master of ceremonies (emcee) or disc jockey (DJ) at weddings, parties, or clubs. Many announcers work in radio and television studios. Others work for sports teams or are self-employed. Many announcers work only part time.
Individuals in this field of work are highly skilled film industry employees who work editing movies or videos. The success or ultimate failure of the production lies in their hands. The final production must be a coherent project that incorporates the storyline and personality of the starring actors. Many in the industry consider film editing to be an art that often goes unnoticed and unappreciated, with some dubbing film editing as 'the silent art'. The history of film editing is a long trek, going back to the early heydays of Hollywood. As technology grew, the job descriptions of film editors expanded, to include the field of video editors.
A film director is in charge of making sure that every component of a movie runs smoothly. Generally, these directors work on a movie from its conception stage to its delivery stage. They have a say in how the scenes unfold, what props are going to be used, how the characters should look and who should play specific parts. Directors also work with individuals in charge of lighting, scenery, writing and so forth to make sure that all of the elements come together. The director is in charge of the three main phases, which are pre-production, production and post-production. Generally, he or she does not actually do the work for post-production but is in charge of overseeing it.
News reporters and correspondents (also known as journalists), gather news and information to keep the public informed about important events. They obtain their information through a number of sources. These may include personal interviews, contacts, wire services (news transmitted via satellite dishes), news briefings, and question-and-answer periods. News reporters gather and assemble this information to be relayed to the public. Newspapers, magazines, television and radio stations rely on news correspondents to keep their readers, viewers and listeners informed.
A projectionist is a lover of movies. It is not just a job; it is a passion. Their passion is bringing a film to the world in the way a director intended. A projectionist understands the equipment used to project film stock and video. More than this they also care about the project that is brought to the screen. Through technical knowledge they can thrill an audience through brilliant showmanship. They are the person responsible for a superb viewing experience at the cinemas, drive-in theaters, film festivals, corporate seminars and school functions. A projectionist makes an audience happy by keeping the picture in focus and the sound properly synchronized.
Camera operators record images that entertain or inform an audience. Camera operators capture a wide range of material for TV shows, motion pictures, music videos, documentaries, and news and sporting events. Most work in the motion picture industry or television broadcasting.
People working in the broadcasting field help provide coverage of sporting events using a variety of different media outlets, such as radio, television, and internet. That being said, the actual job of a sportscaster can vary quite a bit from one career group to the next. Some sportscasters will specialize in a particular sport, doing commentary, others will specialize in research, production, and presentation of many different sporting events and competitions.
A television writer is a skilled writer responsible for the developing, writing, and revision of scripts so that they are ready for the silver screen.

Television writers usually work as part of a group of writers to ensure that scripts are written well and meet strict deadlines.
