Craft

The craft of a screen production can cover everything from the costume and make-up of the cast to the construction of the set itself. Whether your production is a historical period drama or a sci-fi adventure, it's craft jobs like art director, stagehand, set painter, rigger, hair and make-up artist, or props manager that give a film or TV show its unique look. Most people enter these departments as assistants or runners and work their way up by mastering the specialist skills of their craft.
