Watch: 'Who's Who on a Movie Crew' Explains How Movies Get Made with Humorous Animation

Aug 09, 2013

Have you ever found yourself watching the end credits of a movie and wondering what the hell a gaffer does? Or maybe you've been near a film set and were curious as to what all 150 random people standing around were actually supposed to be doing.

The folks over at Vimeo break it down for you in this cutesy old-timey animated video, explaining who the main players are when it comes to making a movie.

Now next time you're watching the end credits, you can lean over to the person next to you and fill their ear with all sorts of nerdy information. Trust us, "Hey babe, I know what a unit production manager does..." is one helluva pick-up line.
