    ...
    artificial lights, either the shadows will go completely black or the highlights will go completely white. All of this means that if you
    want a scene to look natural, ironically the only way to do that is to have enough light to make film see the scene the way our eyes see the scene.
    pre production :
    The lighting diector will read the script carefully and make notes on changes in place and
    time between scenes - such changes are often done just with lighting to avoid
    too many blackouts in one scene - and will have meetings with the Director, Designers,stage managers and production manager
    and during the pre-production to talk about ideas for the show and establish budget and scheduling details.
    Production:During the production the lighting director has to organise what lights are needed and where they go. They also need to arranged the type of lights they will be using because of different colour schemes. They need to know what lights go in certain angles and make sure they get the right amount of shadow they need so they don't get to much darkness. They also create the right mood they need for that scence and can ajust the amont of light there using witch means they can turn it brighter or darker.
    Post production:They have to be prepared to do a reshoot, just incase something goes wrong.
    What other roles collaborate with your role? how do they ?Camera:would collaborate with my role because they would also be needing to see how the light looks through the camera and how well it is going to effect the actors/actresses through the angles of the light.
    director:would collaborate with the lighting director because they would need the feed back from the director and the directors opinion about what should be done with the lights.Actors/actresses: would collaborate with the lighting director because the lights will be setting the mood of the scene and also give you an idea of what the character is like and about.

    Depending on the size of the job, there will be crew members known as 'electricians', but some crew members wont be trained as actual electricians.
    What training is required to take this role?
    Gaffers are fully qualified electricians, and usually rise through the levels of the Lighting Department, but some may have a degree in Electrical Engineering. They may have added bonus qualifications during their career. They work for several years in different lighting roles before becoming a Gaffer. They need to attend trade shows to keep up to date with their knowledge of the equipment that is available to them. Many Gaffers work freelance and are self-employed, although in practise they often work with the same few DoPs (Director of Photography).

    What is required of the role for each stage of the film production process (pre-production, production, post-production)?
    After reading a script, the casting director, director, and producer decide what types of actors fit various roles in the script. This is where a good memory for faces and names--as well as industry contacts--comes in handy. At this stage of the film the casting director have to sit through several auditions for people auditioning for the actors in the movie, this also involved going through the script and contemplating which person is best for each role.
